DoP Seminars

Dr Tarek Younis is a Lecturer in Psychology at Middlesex University. He researches and writes on Islamophobia, racism in mental health, and the securitisation of clinical settings. He teaches on the impact of culture, religion, globalisation and security policies on mental health.

This presentation serves as a reflection on the challenges of researching racism in healthcare in a post-racial context. It will explore how prejudice is given preference to policy, and discuss how colour-blindness and representation politics evades how racism is legitimised through institutional practices. It will provide some thoughts for future research. If anyone would like further reading: https://doi.org/10.1111/1467-9566.13047
