Report Launch: Taking Part: Muslim Participation in Governance

Muslim Participation in Contemporary Governance (MPCG) is a research project funded by the AHRC/ESRC joint research programme on Religion & Society.

It is the most comprehensive study to date on UK Muslim-government relations, and includes an analysis of public policy since 1997, more than 100 interviews with key policymakers and Muslim civil society actors, and in-depth local case studies of Birmingham, Leicester, and Tower Hamlets, London.
