CMSS Public Lecture: Canadian Muslim Youth and Perceptions of Political Participation : A Public Lecture by Katherine Bullock Other events...
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.

Katherine Bullock is a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science, University of Toronto at Mississauga. She sits on the boards of The Tessellate Institute and the North American Association of Islamic and Muslim Studies. She is also President of Compass Books, dedicated to publishing top-quality books about Islam and Muslims in English. Her teaching focus is political Islam and her research focuses on Muslims in Canada, debates on the veil, and media representations of Islam and Muslims. Originally from Perth, she lives in Oakville, Canada with her husband and children. She embraced Islam in 1994.
