Youths' Experiences of Discrimination, Social Marginalization and Violence: Differences in Perspectives Between Muslims And Non-Muslims

01 March 2010 | 5.00pm | Seminar
Beech Grove House, University of Leeds

This seminar presents some of the findings of a research study conducted during 2008/09 in France, Spain and the UK. The study involved a large-scale survey amongst 12-18 year olds which aimed to explore the relationship between young people’s experiences of discrimination and social marginalisation and the identification of attitudes that were supportive of violence and their actual engagement in violent behaviours. The seminar will focus on differences and similarities in the experiences and attitudes of Muslim youths compared to non-Muslim youths.

Susan Wiltshire is a lecturer in Criminology at the University of Leeds, having previously taught at the University of Glasgow. Her interests include youth crime and antisocial behaviour, religiously motivated crime, and the significance of religious identity and belonging amongst youth.
