Legalizing Othering – the United States of Islamophobia

The Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society has published a Research Report (September 2017) about the rise of the “anti-Sharia law” movement since events of 9/11.  The report and online database aim to unmask the multiplicities of anti-Muslim and anti-Islam movements that have propelled the adoption of federal measures (2002 to present) and capitalized on electoral politics and state legislatures (2010 – 2016) to disproportionately legalize the “othering” of Muslims across the United States.
