These resources give an overview of Muslims and Islam in the UK. The underlying research is a synthesis of open source, humanities and social science research on British Muslims and Islam. It draws on academic literature from Islamic studies, religious studies, history, sociology, anthropology, political science, education, social psychology, and policy and security studies, as well as information from a variety of websites produced by Muslim and Islamic groups, and material from news websites.
The reports and guides were written by CREST Researcher Professor Kim Knott, as part of CREST’s Ideas, Beliefs and Values in Social Context project. They are intended to inform and enrich discussions about Muslims in the UK.
