MONITORING RESPONDING MEDIA AWARENESS GET INVOLVED
  INTRODUCTION

FAIR's Media & Popular Culture Watch monitors specific incidences of Islamophobia and issues of concern and/or interest to the multi-faith communities in Britain.

In addition to monitoring the the media, one of the objectives on the Project is to develop proactive initiatives to facilitate more balanced and fair reporting of Muslims in the media. We aim to work alongside media professionals to further develop their understanding of the Muslim community by being a point of contact for their research, and providing awareness training and resources such as press packs on issues of interest.

The Media & Popular Culture Watch monitoring process is a dynamic effort, and relies on the involvement of the communities we support.

  GUARDIAN POLL

From the 17th-21st June, the Guardian printed a series of articles on Muslims in Britain as part of a special report. In the words of the Guardian leader on the 19th of June the series was an attempt ‘to shine the light wider and more penetratingly on the lives, hopes and fears of Britain's Muslims. If they did not know it already, readers will now be aware of how often the reality differs radically from the cruder stereotypes.’

We conducted a poll as part of our review of the Guardian series,  in which we attempted to gauge the success of the series. It is also an attempt to identify and highlight examples of balanced and fair reporting of Muslims in Britain, to be upheld as examples of best practice.
