PUBLIC LECTURE: CMSS Public Lecture: Canadian Muslim Youth and Perceptions of Political Participation
|CMSS Public Lecture: Canadian Muslim Youth and Perceptions of Political Participation : A Public Lecture by Katherine Bullock
News media often portray Canadian Muslim youth as alienated from society and prone to radicalisation. This lecture focuses on a more complex reality of alienation and engagement, seen through the lens of perceptions of political participation. Using qualitative interview data from 30 Muslim youth in the Greater Toronto Area and London, Ontario, the findings demonstrate a similar pattern to other Canadian youth with respect to political participation, but surprisingly with very high participation rates in the voluntary sector.
