Muslims in the UK (Short Course)

Muslims have been present in the UK in sizeable numbers since the 1960s. Many are born here living their whole lives as British citizens, others arrived yesterday. Muslims can be found in all walks of life and the diversity of Muslim backgrounds when it comes to ethnicity, theology, language is vast. Still, there are ways to generalise. This course will address, among other things, the history and diversity of Muslims in the UK, the discussion about integration, radicalisation, securitisation, gender and Sharia.
