Contextualising Islam in Britain – Phase II

A series of four symposia organised by the Centre of Islamic Studies, supported by the Department of Communities and Local Government, in association with the Universities of Exeter and Westminster

Building on the findings of the first phrase of Contextualising Islam in Britain, the second phase deepened the reflections and discussion of a diverse group of Muslim British scholars, academics and activists on the question of what it means to live faithfully as a Muslim in Britain. It considered topics such as the balance between the individual and the community; gender equality, identity and sexuality; education; and notions of the common good.
