Muslims and non-Muslims in England
In an increasingly multicultural and multi-religious Europe, there is significant public interest in how relations between Muslims and non-Muslims are and should be like, as well as how they are and should be managed. The project engages key stakeholders in frank conversations about Muslim-majority relations in England. At the onset, the project will rely on observational fieldwork and personal interviews. Further on, the aim is to conduct group discussions involving five sections of society (middle-income earners; welfare recipients; teachers; young adults; local politicians) in three localities (London; Birmingham; Halifax).
