EHRC report: The impact of counter-terrorism measures on Muslim communities

In June 2011, the Equality and Human Rights Commission published an independent¬†report entitled¬†‘The impact of counter-terrorism measures on Muslim communities’ (Research report 72).

This qualitative research report examines the diverse experiences of Muslims on the street and in the community, at ports and airports, and in mosques, schools and universities, as a result of counter-terrorism measures. EHRC commissioned this research to provide a contribution to the evidence base on the impact of counter-terrorism measures in Britain, an area where few facts are known.

While the opinions in the report are those of the researchers and not necessarily the views of the EHRC, some of the findings have informed EHRC’s response to the government’s counter-terrorism review and more recently the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill.
