Two decades since Runnymede was first credited with coining the term 'Islamophobia' in our flagship 1997 report, we look at how the phenomenon has evolved over the past 20 years, and how it manifests itself today.

This anniversary report (released November 2017) brings together varied perspectives from leading thinkers on inequality and Muslims in Britain, unpacking issues such as integration, hate crime, gender, identity and, of course, racism.

The views expressed in each essay are those of the named authors and do not necessarily represent Runnymede's organisational position. For Runnymede's own deeper analysis and re-definition of Islamophobia as 'anti-Muslim racism', see Part 1 of the report.
