The Foundation has commissioned or co-funded the following research on Muslim and disadvantaged communities in the UK:
The Foundation, together with Barrow Cadbury Trust, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and Unbound Philanthropy commissioned a report by IPSOS Mori analysing research since 2010 to build a comprehensive picture of British Muslims and their values and identities.
The Foundation supported this report by the Citizens Commission on Islam, Participation and Public Life, which covers a range of issues that can hinder and support the presence of Muslims in British public life.
The report contains eighteen recommendations for stakeholders including civil society and the business sector, government and local authorities and Muslim communities in the UK.
The Foundation part-funded this report that argues for a stronger evidence base from which to understand and assess how the Prevent duty as it plays out in schools and colleges. This report begins to respond to this requirement. Focusing on the experiences and attitudes of school and college staff, it examines four questions:
1) How has the new Prevent duty been interpreted by staff in schools and colleges in England?
2) How confident do school/college staff feel with regards to implementing the Prevent duty?
3) What impacts, if any, do school/college staff think the Prevent duty has had on their school or college, and on their interactions with students and parents?
4) To what extent, if at all, have school/college staff opposed or questioned the legitimacy of the Prevent duty?
This anniversary report (released November 2017) brings together varied perspectives from leading thinkers on inequality and Muslims in Britain, unpacking issues such as integration, hate crime, gender, identity and, of course, racism.
This report, produced by the Bridge Institute and funded by the Aziz Foundation, argues that converts represent a transitional population that has the potential to form an effective bridge between heritage Muslim communities and the larger non-Muslim European societies.
