Muftis, Fatwas & Muslims in the UK
– A Study of Islamic Legal Advice
The centre’s director, Prof Sophie Gilliat-Ray, is co-investigator on a study of religious advice in Britain. The project, Muftis, Fatwas, and Muslims in the UK – A Study of Islamic Legal Advice, will examine the people who make religious judgements in Britain and the context in which their advice is sought, given and interpreted. The project is led by Prof Robert Gleave of the University of Exeter, and it is supported by the GW4 Consortium, drawing on expertise and resources from Cardiff University, Exeter, Bristol and Bath.
Cardiff University hosts a workshop related to the project on Monday 6 February on Understanding Religion and Law. Click here for more details →
