Lecture: "Innocent Until Proven Muslim: Institutionalized Islamophobia in the War on Terror"

Presented by: Maha Hilal, PhD Co-PI of the Torture Trauma Treatments Project with the American Psychological Association

Overview: What is it like to be discriminated against because of how you look or how you pray? In the context of the War on Terror, Muslim-Americans have been directly targeted by U.S. counter-terrorism policies based on the rationale of "collective responsibility." Drawing on her extensive research, Dr. Maha Hilal will focus on the ways in which Muslims have been criminalized by virtue of their religious and racialized identity and subjected to a separate system of justice. She will also describe the mental health consequences of physical confinement and other conditions under which the Muslims have been held during the "War on Terror."
