From the building of walls against potential asylum seekers to the rise of far-right parties, the restriction of foreign nationals' social rights, the imposition of obstacles to naturalisation and the selective prohibition of minority practices, the institutionalisation of racism is undermining the fundamental principles of conviviality in European societies. In keeping with its mission of legal-political evaluation and criticism, the MULTIHURI team organised its II Seminar series on racism, multi-discrimination and human rights throughout the 2016-2017 academic year. Once a month, various academic and civil society experts met at Valencia University's Faculty of Social Sciences to identify the challenges surrounding racist discriminations and propound ways of tackling them effectively and fairly. On 23 February at 17:30, Mariam Barouni, president of Valencia Islamic Cultural Centre, and Amparo Sánchez Rosell, coordinator of the Civic Platform against Islamophobia, joined Jaime Bonet, professor of State Ecclesiastical Law at the University of Valencia, to impart a session on islamophobia in Spain.
