Final report released: "Taking Part: Muslim Participation in Contemporary Governance" (pdf, 5.5mb)
Muslim Participation in Contemporary Governance is a research project that was funded by the AHRC/ESRC joint research programme on Religion & Society from July 2010 to December 2012. The project investigates how UK governance includes British Muslims and how Muslims themselves become involved in consultations, partnerships, and governance networks. Academic researchers have built a growing understanding of British Muslim protest and activism from the Salman Rushdie Affair until today. Yet the participation of British Muslims in policymaking and implementation, and in local and national processes of governing remains largely an untold story.
Our Final Report "Taking Part" was launched on 31 January 2013 at the Bishopsgate Institute in London. The Report has now been released online (pdf. 5.5mb)
