At this event Dr Naaz Rashid will be revisiting her monograph Veiled Threats (2016) which examined how Prevent, the UK's counter terrorism agenda, legitimated gendered anti-Muslim racism.
She will look at how these narratives have become more deeply entrenched in the UK in light of right wing populism. She will be joined by Fatima Ahdash, who will discuss how Prevent has practically impacted on Muslim women particularly in relation to family law.
