Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to draw up a report on the discourse on Islam and Muslims in the mainstream European media, and to consider the changes taking place in the perception of Islam and Muslims in the political context of the recognition of Islamophobia and the promotion of diversity or of the visibility of minorities. Like other ethnic media, Muslim media can offer a forum in which to speak, a political platform, a space in which to present new images and representations of misunderstood or previously silenced minorities. After drawing a portrait of these media, their contribution in terms of media coverage, especially in the area of gender relations will be considered. Although the chapter covers the main tendencies throughout Europe, its focuses mainly on the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.

Keywords: European media; France; Islam; Islamophobia; Muslim media; Netherlands; Spain
