The NYU Brademas and the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) co-hosted an afternoon discussion on Islamophobia and the findings of this year's ISPU survey. ISPU Director of Research Dalia Mogahed presented the findings of the survey followed by a lively discussion with moderator Mehdi Hasan (The Intercept) and panelists John Esposito, Professor of Religion & International Affairs and Islamic Studies at Georgetown University, Walter Ruby, Chairman of the Greater Washington Muslim-Jewish Forum, and Ibram Kendi, Professor and Director of the Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University.

Returning for its fourth year, ISPU’s American Muslim Poll surveys Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, white Evangelicals, and those that consider themselves non-affiliated to compare attitudes across religious groups. Triumphs and tribulations punctuated the year leading up to ISPU’s fourth annual poll. Record-breaking voter turnout at the 2018 midterm elections led to the the historic election of a diverse new class of Congress. At the same time, the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the travel ban, and the country faced the longest ever government shutdown. It was against this backdrop that ISPU’s annual poll charts the attitudes and policy preferences of everyday Americans. American Muslim Poll 2019: Predicting and Preventing Islamophobia offers the public, policymakers, and researchers rare depth and breadth of analysis along with a set of data-driven recommendations.

This year’s survey also includes ISPU’s second Islamophobia Index (II), created in partnership with Georgetown’s Bridge Initiative. This year, we use the II to examine and tease out factors that predict and prevent Islamophobia.
