The Muddled Response to Multiculturalism
27th January 2011
Dr Jonathan Githens-Mazer has written a new working paper for the Center of Global Migration and Transitional Politics at George Mason University entitled: Beyond Extremism and Ideology: The Unanticipated Constructive Roles played by North African Islamists and Jihadis in Contemporary British Society.
A great deal of current British political debate hinges on discussions about the role of "extremism" in the alienation of British Muslims and the subsequent emergence of terrorist threats. Interviews with British North Africans who are Islamists and former jihadis into violent radicalization showed that there are clear distinctions between "terrorists" and Islamists. However, the current thinking does not account for the diversity of those labelled as "extremist" and incorrectly assesses their threats to community cohesion and/or security, hindering the potential for improved civic dialogues.
The report 'Islamophobia and Anti-Muslim Hate Crime: UK Case Studies' is published by the European Muslim Research Centre at the University of Exeter and The Cordoba Foundation, and is sponsored by the Al Jazeera Centre for Studies.
