James Eglinton on Scottish Government anti-bigotry campaign

Press/Media: Expert Comment


In this op-ed article for The Herald, I argue that the anti-bigotry campaign currently run by the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, and One Scotland, promotes careless and crass stereotypes concerning the relationship of religion and bigotry, and that the campaign's promotional posters needlessly contradict leading academic theory on religious peace building.
