Abstract

This project will explore how Muslims in Australia and the United Kingdom understand their relationship to the state. Utilizing publications and interviews with Muslim intellectuals active in the public domain this project will illuminate how modern Muslims respond to the issues of citizenship, identity and national belonging. These issues are of vital importance in a multicultural state. By exploring the spectrum of Muslim opinion, this project will foster a greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities generated by Muslim settlement in the West.
