Jytte Klausen to give briefing before U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

Oct. 02, 2012

Professor Jytte Klausen has been invited by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to appear at a hearing on discrimination of Arab and Muslims Americans to be held on November 9, 2012.

The purpose of the briefing is to examine the methods, goals, and effectiveness of the federal government’s recent and proposed post-9/11 civil rights engagement with the Arab and Muslim American community, including federal outreach to the general public to end prejudice and discrimination against these communities. The Commission hopes to address questions such as: What kind of engagement works in reducing bias and discrimination against Arab and Muslim Americans? What education and enforcement efforts are changing the hearts and minds of those who would discriminate against Arab and Muslim Americans? What are the obstacles to ending such prejudice and discrimination?
