Abstract

Some believe the ‘Muslim vote’ might be influential in the next UK General Election in 2015. In this post, Jan Dobbernack, Nasar Meer and Tariq Modood address some misconceptions about Muslim participation in democracy. They argue that Muslims face a very challenging environment when engaging in politics, but are no more likely to be cynical about the democratic process than other groups, and accusations that Muslims pursue sectarian or grievance-based politics are inaccurate.
