Islam and the Community: Panel Discussion : This panel discussion will engage with the various reactions to current national security policy in Australia Other events...
There are some students and individuals of Muslim background who feel that they are being targeted through the new focus on anti-terrorism moves taken by the Federal Government. There is also concern among students and members of the wider community about perceived dangers posed by Muslim community members to their safety and society. Given these fears, it is important to open the space for discussion among stakeholders and members of the students and wider community. This panel will discuss the following; • What has been done to counter possible threats of terrorism? • What is their perceived impact on communal harmony? • How can government agencies and the general public across religious, ethnic and educational backgrounds work together to ensure that Australia’s positive record as a multicultural society is maintained?

Professor Sam Makinda: Professor of International Relations and Security Studies in the School of Management and Governance at Murdoch University.
