Examining the conversion journeys of nearly fifty British men of all ages, ethnicities and faiths, this report allows an unprecedented examination of the challenges and concerns facing converts to Islam in the UK today.
The landmark report, produced by Cambridge's Centre of Islamic Studies, captures the isolation and dislocation felt by many new converts, and the sense of being a 'minority within a minority' as they adjust to life as a follower of one of the most maligned and misunderstood faiths in the UK.
With converts drawn from white, black and South Asian backgrounds from across the UK, Cambridge assembled nearly 50 British males over the course of the 18-month project in an attempt to understand and record the experiences of British male converts to Islam. The converts were from a diverse range of geographical and socio-economic backgrounds.
Speaking under Chatham House Rules, the converts gathered together in Cambridge over three weekends to record their responses to a wide-ranging list of themes, questions and provocations.
