TW: institutional racism & islamophobia
Tarek provides listeners with a brief history of PREVENT and explores how public bodies are ‘trained’ to identify ‘at risk’ individuals in the war on terror. We discuss the racialisation of Muslims, ‘colourblindness’ and how Britain has ‘managed’ dissent.
This is a special five part series in collaboration with the official journal of the Institute of Race Relations (IRR), Race & Class. The series begins with an introduction to the history of IRR with Director Liz Fekete & follows with four episodes about the latest special issue: Race Mental Health, State Violence with editors Eddie Bruce-Jones & Monish Bhatia and contributors Tarek Younis and Vanessa E Thompson.
