Another Europe at Labour Party Conference 2022

We're back at conference this year with fringe events on Brexit and Environmental Regulation and Islamophobia.

Join us in Liverpool this year for our annual conference fringe events. This time around, we’re running two fringes launching reports on Brexit & the Environment and Islamophobia. The reports were written in collaboration with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.

Anti-Islamophobia Report Launch

Another Europe Is Possible has partnered with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung to launch a research project on the mainstreaming of Islamophobia in Europe. Across the continent, politicians from the left, centre and far right have increasingly used the scapegoating of Muslims as a key element in their electoral campaigns. 

Europe’s Muslim population lives with this dehumanisation on daily basis. It also stirs up anti-migrant sentiment. Anti-Muslim racism, directed towards Turkey and Albania in particular, was a key theme of the Brexit campaign. From Macron’s ‘Islamist seperatism’ bill to Boris Johnson’s deragotary comments about Muslim womens’ dress, mainstream discourse has become steeped with anti-Muslim sentiment. This has consequences for Europe’s Muslim population, who experience high levels of discrimination in employment and education as well as rising hate crime. 

We’ll be joined by author of the report and French civil rights activist Yasser Louati. Further speakers will be confirmed closer to the time.

Date: Monday 26 September, 1pm

Location: Women’s Organisation Meeting Rooms, 54 St James’ Street, Liverpool

Speakers: Yasser Louati, (other speakers tbc)

Brexit and Environmental Regulation Report Launch

How has environmental regulation been impacted by Brexit, and what effect has this had on environmental conditions around the UK? In collaboration with Friedrich Ebert Schtiftung, we’ll be launching a report on the good, the bad and the ugly in the environmental sphere post-Brexit. Author of the report David Baldock, from the Institute for Environmental Policy, is the keynote speaker.

Date: Tuesday 27 September, 1pm

Location: Women’s Organisation Meeting Rooms, 54 St James’ Street, Liverpool

Speakers: David Baldock, Clive Lewis MP (tbc)
