Muslims, Trust and Cultural Dialogue
The Muslims, Trust and Cultural Dialogue research project analyses the conditions of trust and mistrust in three overlapping areas of modern life: politics and society; business and finance; and art and culture. It is an international multidisciplinary network of scholars, practitioners and stakeholders exploring questions of trust in the relationship between Muslim diaspora populations in the West and the societies around them. The project is committed to understanding how existing practices in these three arenas enact dialogue and negotiation between groups in ways that can be mutually informative, and which help us move beyond misunderstanding and negative stereotyping.
The project is led by the University of East London in collaboration with SOAS. The project is directed by Professor Peter Morey at the University of East London and co-directed by Dr Amina Yaqin at SOAS.
