A UK media research aimed specifically at Muslims
A study is being conducted by Staff Staffordshire University (UK), Keele University (UK) and the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Conflict and Violence (University of Bielefeld, Germany) in cooperation with the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (UK). The study is funded by the Vodafone Foundation Germany and the British Council.
The study involves a survey that investigates the way in which the media contributes to or prevents social cohesion and good relations between different communities. As part of this, the researchers are considering media aimed specifically at Muslims, and also the ways in which more mainstream media channels (BBC, ITV, etc.) and newspapers (The Times, The Daily Mail, etc.) handle issues about Muslims or other minorities.
The researchers working on the survey will appreciate your participation and your views about these media outlets, the
kinds of stories you like, and the kinds of media you use.
All your responses will be treated anonymously and will not be passed on to anyone. Your participation in this survey is voluntary, and it takes about 15 minutes to fill. You have the right to withdraw from participation at any time.
If you wish to participate, full information is shown below. Thanks.
One thing the researchers made clear, that you are not obliged to answer or respond to these surveys – please only participate if you are happy to do so. No pressure whatsoever!!!
If you have any questions about the survey or the project, please contact Alex Strugnell (firstname.lastname@example.org) and if you would like a copy of the final report please also let us know. More
