Introduc0on This  report  offers  a  comprehensive  analysis  of  the  phenomenon  of  inaccurate  and  racist  an- ­ Muslim  narra-ves  within  the  Bri-sh  media.  The  report  draws  principally  on  two  kinds  of   sources:  firstly,  it  examines  a  large  range  of  exis-ng  academic  studies,  policy  reports,   empirical  analysis,  opinion  polls,  and  surveys  to  determine  the  state  of  the  research  on  the   ques-on  of  ‘Islamophobia’  in  the  UK  mainstream  media  and  its  societal  impact;  secondly,  it   u-lises  input  obtained  from  16  key  experts  –  journalists  and  editors  (from  both  broadcas-ng   and  print),  media  scholars,  community  leaders,  and  poli-cians  –  who  were  consulted  to  seek   their  informed  perspec-ves  on  the  scale  of  the  problem,  and  what  conceivably  must  be  done   to  solve  it.
