DescriptionRepresenting British Muslims in the Noughties
The formalised representation of Britain's Muslims to the government and other official channels reached a landmark in the late 1990s, with the establishment and public recognition of the Muslim Council of Britain. Since then, the questions of whether there is a need for such representation of Muslims, who should do it, how, and to what end, have been constant topics of debate. This seminar will look at how British Muslim representation has fared over the past two decades, and provide some perspectives on these debates, taking into account important factors such as the impact of securitisation in the wake of international and domestic events, multiculturalism policy, and developments within British Muslim communities themselves.
