Research output: Book/ReportOther report


Critics of Muslim representation have become more prominent over the last decade. As a consequence, almost all attempts to lobby politically on behalf of Muslims are regarded by many with suspicion. Today, though, Muslim representation is more dynamic, with new Muslim voices using a range of different channels to engage with government. The dominant understanding of Muslim representation as a ‘system of self-appointed leaders’ needs to be reassessed to take these changes into account.
