The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold a two-day forum in London beginning Saturday for media experts and civil society representatives to explore mechanisms for countering Islamophobia.

The forum has been co-organized with the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) and hosted by the Islamic Cultural Center (ICC) in London. The two-day event will conclude with recommendations and possible projects for implementation.

Participants will look at the phenomenon of Islamophobia from a legal and human rights perspective, and how it is covered and handled, or promoted in the media, as well as the role of civil society organizations in addressing racial discrimination, hatred and denigration of religions.
