This volume focuses on how the far right’s views of Islam have been increasingly co-opted by both liberal and conservative parties and woven into the policies of Western governments over the past two decades. The unprecedented influence of xenophobic and Islamophobic parties, whether in coalition with governments or recipients of the popular vote, reflects a major realignment of forces and a danger to the Western core values of human rights and equality. From the Far Right to the Mainstream explores how Islamophobia has moved to the mainstream of Western policy making, and the role that the media has played.
Humayan Ansari is professor of Islam and Cultural Diversity and director of the Centre for Minority Studies at Royal Holloway, University of London, and the author of three other books on cultural diversity and Muslims in the West.

Farid Hafez lectures at the Department of Oriental Studies at the University of Vienna and the Muslim Teachers Training College in Vienna and is the author of three books on Islamophobia.
