Abstract: Publisher's description: This report has been commissioned to highlight how certain laws and the experience of Muslim communities of these laws is discriminatory and Islamophobic, whereby some major questions arise; can the legal system of any country be neutral as to religion, race and even gender? If so, in the United Kingdom, are we almost there or is this work in progress? By analysing responses from a nationwide survey of 1125 Muslims and answers from 47 qualitative questionnaires, this report seeks to answer some of these questions and to contextualise within current debates and critique of how Western systems of law represent minorities both in democratic terms and in service delivery. Background studies into minority rights, critical legal studies have also been established to lay the foundations for the findings in the report.
