Title : Living apart together : British Muslims and the paradox of multiculturalism

Description :
This website provides access to the full text of 'Living Apart Together: British Muslims and the Paradox of Multiculturalism' (ISBN 190609702-X). This report was commissioned by Policy Exchange (charity registration number: 1096300) to seek a better understanding of the attitudes of Muslims in contemporary Britain and of the factors that contribute to the rise of Islamic fundamentalism amongst the younger generation. The print version of the work was published in 2007 and it was jointly authored by Munira Mirza, Abi Senthilkumaran and Zein Ja'far. The report is 99 pages in length and consists of three parts. These are organised into eight chapters as follows: Introduction; The Emergence of Muslim Consciousness in Britain; Identity and Belonging; Cultural Attitudes; Foreign Policy and the Ummah [community of believers]; Victimhood; Who Speaks for Muslims?; and Reflections on Policy. This should be an interesting resource for students of Islam.
