About this Event

London Met PGR Training 2020-21

This event is run in conjunction with the Global Diversities and Inequalities Research Centre.

The influx of migrants from mainly Muslim-majority countries to the West combined with the rise of radical Islamist groups violently challenging the existing political order in the Middle East and North Africa present both challenges and opportunities for researchers.

This training aims at identifying practical and methodological opportunities as well as challenges and uncertainties involved in conducting research on Muslims. With a focus on methodological and ethical challenges faced while conducting both qualitative and quantitative research in increasingly unstable socio-political environments and how researchers address these challenges, this training brings together scholars’ ideas whose research involves studying aspects of Muslim politics from various disciplinary backgrounds.

The objective is to identify ethical and practical challenges involved in studying Islam, share insights and experiences of researchers from the Middle East and North Africa, and explore ways of developing better techniques to collect quality data from Muslim groups or societies. It aims to better understand the ethics, politics, and responsibilities involved in studying Islam and Muslims in an age characterized by a defiant and resurgent faith.

Session lead, Dr A Erdi Öztürk, Global Diversities and Inequalities Research Centre, School of Social Sciences
