 Established as an independent charitable organisation, FAIR's aims and objectives are:

  • To raise awareness of and challenge Islamophobia through constructive and educational means.

  • To project a more balanced and positive image of Islam, as practiced by the vast majority of British Muslims.

  • To monitor and identify specific incidences of harassment and violence and deal with them by case-specific means. To work towards the elimination of religious discrimination at all levels and to promote equality of opportunity for all.

  • To campaign and lobby to highlight and critique unjust laws affecting the Muslim community in Britain. To monitor the way the regime of anti-discrimination law is working and recommend improvements.
     
  • To encourage good relationships between people and communities of different religious, racial and ethnic backgrounds.

     

FAIR carries out its work through its four project areas:

  • Faith & Positive Images
    To raise awareness of and challenge Islamophobia through constructive and educational means in order to create a more just society. To project a more balanced and positive image of Islam and Muslims through the promotion of the Islamic arts and culture. To promote interfaith cooperation and dialogue around shared values and beliefs.
     
  • Media & Popular Culture Watch
    To monitor specific incidences of Islamophobia and issues of concern and/or interest to multi-faith communities in Britain.

     
  • Equality Casework & Monitoring
    To monitor and identify specific incidences of Islamophobic discrimination, harassment and violence. FAIR aims to provide advice and assistance to victims and complainants, and where necessary, refer them to other agenices which can further help them.

  • Policy Research & Lobbying
    To respond to Government and other consultations and provide briefings to government departments and officials on challenging Islamophobic and Muslim alienating trends in society.
