During the lecture, we will detect and then elaborate in detail on various manifestations of anti-Muslim hatred in the countries of Western, Eastern, and South-Eastern Europe

We will provide an answer to the question of whether there is something that is potentially common to all actors who promote anti-Muslim hatred, and, we will look at the process of how Muslims, through various forms of reductionism and essentialization, are being transformed into a security threat to the societies and systems in which they live.
