Collaborative partnerships between universities and Muslim institutions: dismantling the roadblocks

  • Start date: 01 August 2012
  • End date: 30 September 2013

Our project will develop and disseminate existing research findings about the benefits of collaborative partnerships between British universities and British Muslim colleges (research from 2010, 2011, 2012), focussing particularly on ways to forge a more cohesive society for Muslims and other Britons. Furthermore changes are afoot in the Arab world and we need to be able to capitalise on these changes for cultural, economic and social reasons. This will require specific skill sets eg an understanding of Islam that is positive, cultural literacy about diverse Muslim communities and Arabic language fluency - skills which may be developed as part of such collaborations.

This project will run four regional knowledge exchange seminars and an academic conference.These seminars and conferences will bring together academics, practitioners and employers in an environment that is conducive to sharing experiences and opinions.This process of knowledge-sharing will lead to enhanced understandings of good practice and also clarify and suggest solutions to potential obstacles.Through these consultations we hope to achieve a critical mass of information that may encourage increased collaborations and related benefits for all stakeholders involved.
