Prof. Khaled Beydoun will discuss the Muslim Ban and the emergence of Legal Islamophobia. Prof. Beydoun argues that Legal Islamophobia is facilitated by legal and political baselines – deeply embedded in legal, media, and political institutions – that frame Islam as un-American, and Muslims as presumptive national security threats. Its spread is further facilitated by modern law and policy that marks Islam as an extremist ideology that spawns “radicalization”.
Professor Khaled Beydoun is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, and affiliated faculty at the UC-Berkeley Islamophobia Research and Documentation. Professor Beydoun is an active public intellectual. In addition to his regular commentary in AlJazeera English, Professor Beydoun’s insight has been featured in the Washington Post, the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Time, Salon, and ESPN; and television and radio news programming including CNN, the BBC, Fox, NBC and ABC News.
The conversation will be moderated by Nigel Barriffe – President of Urban Alliance of Race Relations.
