Dr. Jasjit Singh will talk about his recent research project which examined the idea, context, framing and realities of ‘Sikh radicalisation in Britain’ following media reports about this issue in 2015. Dr Singh gathered evidence by interviewing self-identifying Sikh activists and by analysing historic and contemporary media sources, academic literature, social media and online discussion forums. He also conducted a series of community consultations on the emerging findings which fed in to the final report.
Dr. Singh requests that those signing up for the webinar familiarise themselves with the Executive Summary and Full report before the webinar.
