Understanding muslim ethnic communities

E-mail Print

The Change Institute (CI) was contracted in 2008 by Communities and Local Government to undertake the research project Understanding Muslim Ethnic Communities. Communities and Local Government recognised that its understanding and knowledge of the Muslim population in England had been skewed towards the larger Muslim ethnic communities of Pakistani and Bangladeshi origin or heritage. This left critical gaps in knowledge and understanding of smaller Muslim ethnic communities.

The aim of the research was to identify the key characteristics of these Muslim communities in England in order to guide Communities and Local Government’s work and delivery of projects within England as well as informing its international engagement programme.
