Birmingham’s Muslim: A Research Programme with Birmingham University

by Liam Byrne | 01.07.17

Many argue that today’s rise in extremism can be traced back to two overlapping crisis; a crisis of ideology, and a crisis of identity. This research programme which I help advise with Shabana Mahmood MP sets out to explore questions of identity, in our own home city of Birmingham. It’s a three year programme which we hope will develop new answers to the challenge of developing what you might call a very English Islam.
