Scotland’s Muslims: Early Settlement, Current Context and Research Themes

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Scotland's Muslims

Peter Hopkins

Edinburgh University Press

The chapters in this collection explore the everyday lives, experiences, practices and attitudes of Muslims in Scotland. In order to set the context for these chapters, in this introduction I explore the early settlement of Muslims in Scotland and discuss some of the initial research projects that charted the settlement of Asians and Pakistanis in Scotland’s main cities. I then discuss the current situation for Muslims in Scotland through data from the 2011 Scottish Census. Following a short note about the significance of the Scottish context, in the final section, the main themes and issues that have been explored in research about Muslims in Scotland.

Keywords:   Gender, generation and sexuality, national, ethnic and religious identities, residential segregation, suburbanisation and integration, racism, Islamophobia and securitisation
