Sport, Muslim Identities and Cultures in the UK: Case studies of Leicester and Birmingham

In its bid to stage the 2012 Olympics, London made great play of its multicultural makeup as a context for welcoming the world’s athletes. The communities in East London certainly reflect cultural diversity. This project is thus a part of a wider research programme aimed at exploring the links between ethno-religious groups, ways of life and Western sport. Dr. Mahfoud Amara and Professor Ian Henry from COS&R undertake this study with research grant from the British Academy. See more
