Research Focus

As a highly visible minority, Muslim women in Northern Ireland experience disproportionately high levels of discrimination which intensifies their vulnerability and interferes with place-making. With the majority of asylum seekers and refugees identifying as Muslim, the population has more than doubled since the 2011 census, with an estimated 10,000 Muslims currently resident in Northern Ireland. As a new and growing population, no comprehensive research has yet examined the impact of the local post-conflict context on how Muslim women establish a sense of place and belonging. Through ethnographic examination, I demonstrate that assumptions made about Muslim women’s bodies structure the options available to women, the spaces they inhabit, and the ways they move their bodies. I then examine the ways in which women have overcome these restrictions to establish a place for themselves. Acknowledging these restrictions and the techniques women employ to manage them can allow societies to challenge and alter their approaches to growing diversity, to focus upon practices that facilitate inclusion and participation.
