Do you have questions for the Dokustelle?

The documentation and advice center (Dokustelle) for Islamophobia and anti-Muslim racism was founded on December 10, 2014, on International Human Rights Day.
Islamophobic incidents in Austria should be documented for the first time due to the increasing number of Islamophobic attacks in the immediate vicinity or in the media.

The Dokustelle has been a registered association since 2017.

Anti-Muslim racism is defined as “a form of racism specifically directed against Muslims or those perceived as such.
Anti-Muslim racism describes a relationship of dominance that is aimed directly at individuals as well as groups and institutions that see themselves as Muslim or are marked as Muslim by others.

Anti-Muslim racism can manifest itself in a variety of ways, such as discrimination, hate crime, speech and actions by individuals, groups and institutions.

Anti-Muslim racism this manifests itself as a structural element of a society, on an institutional level, on a discursive level and on an individual level.”

(Working definition of anti-Muslim racism I-Report)

We say report even if the case is not clear, because we analyze the event more closely during the conversation and thus determine whether the case is to be classified as anti-Muslim.
