WASHINGTON -  The University of California, Berkeley Center for Race and Gender will today conclude its conference, called "Islamophobia Production and Re-Defining the Global 'Security' Agenda for the 21st Century," to address civil rights issues resulting from the alarming rise in anti-Muslim sentiment in American society.

Scholars, activists and experts, including representatives of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), will take part in panel discussions on topics such as "Producing Islamophobia and Fomenting Fear," "Islamophobia, Citizenship, Patriotism and the Security State," "Race and Racism in US Elections: Wedge Issue and Who Benefits?" and "Clash of Civilizations Discourses and Muslim Otherness."

Today, Zahra Billoo, executive director of CAIR's San Francisco Bay Area chapter, will discuss balancing civil rights and national security.

Other panelists will include:

* Dr. Hatem Bazian, UC Berkeley professor and co-founder of Zaytuna College

* Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, co-founder Zaytuna College

Max Blumenthal, The Nation Institute

"We welcome this important effort to address the growing phenomenon of Islamophobia in our society by presenting research-based analysis and offering concrete proactive policy recommendations," said CAIR's Awad.

Awad said the research papers presented at the conference will be published later this year in the inaugural edition of UC Berkeley's Islamophobia Studies Journal.
