Respect, Dignity, Security
The Islamophobia Register Australia (IRA) was founded on 17 September 2014 in response to the growing anecdotal evidence suggesting a rise in incidents of Islamophobia.
The Register was the first of its kind in Australia to provide a unique platform for incidents of Islamophobia to be reported, recorded and analysed into a published report.
Our findings have informed media and the general public both in Australia and abroad about Islamophobia.
The Register has expanded into providing victim support services, legal advocacy and education & training.

Interactive map on Islamophobia in Australia
With the release of the 4th report, the Register launches an innovative interactive map on Islamophobia in Australia created by the Spatial Data
Analysis Network and Charles Sturt University. It shows all incidents reported to the Register since 2014 until 2021.
This visual tool helps identify hotspots as well as common incident types. The data can be viewed through multiple lenses, for example by severity or by year. By clicking on the specific incident, further details on that incident will show up.
