British Muslim Prisoners: challenges and opportunities of a multi-faith agenda

Dr Muzammil Quraishi
Senior Lecturer, University of Salford

This seminar explores the significance of a rising UK Muslim prison population as a criminological case study.

It centres upon a number of core themes prompted by the small but growing literature in this field. Dr Quraishi concentrates upon exploring the dynamics of the Muslim incarcerated population; the significance of a multi-faith prison agenda; the securitisation and radicalisation debate and the role of Muslim prison Chaplains.
