Canadian Muslim Youth and Political Participation

Canadian Muslim Youth and Political Participation

Date: June 2011    

Authors: Katherine Bullock, PhD & Paul Nesbitt-Larking, PhD

Sponsors: Olive Tree Foundation, MENTORS

This report is based upon a series of encounters between the researchers and twenty young Muslims in two Ontario communities: London and the Greater Toronto Area. The theoretical and methodological bases for the report combined studies in youth political participation in Western societies with techniques of semi-structured interviewing.

The findings uncovered a generalized willingness to engage in the Canadian political society and voluntary sector.
