The Study

My research explores how British Asian Muslims experience and negotiate burdens placed on them by religion and culture. The study utilises data from an ethnography conducted in North West London and Bradford. The research uses classic criminological theory to explain the behaviour of a group of 30 British Asian Muslim males.
