Dutch Islamophobia

By Ineke van der Valk

This book looks at a form of racism that has increased all over Europe for more than a decade. Muslims and Islam have frequently been portrayed unfavorably at the heart of public debate. Manifestations of 'Islamophobia' can be found on the internet, in politics, in schools, and in acts of discrimination and violence committed against mosques. As has sometimes been claimed in the international arena, is the Netherlands truly on the front line in the 'clash of civilizations'? Or, is it all about an exclusion mechanism? The book's report examines this concern. It is based on a study of relevant literature, an analysis of documents, and surveys among secondary school teachers and administrators of mosques.
