As Husband (U. of Helsinki, Finland) and Alam (U. of Bradford, UK) note, the response of the British government to perceived problems of British Muslims living in supposedly self-segregated communities and lacking in shared "British" values has been to launch "Community Cohesion" policies intended to inculcate shared values and a common understanding of the obligations and rights of citizenship. Simultaneously, the British government has also pursued a "Prevent" or counter-terrorism agenda that views Muslim communities as a security threat to be surveilled. The authors investigate how these two, often contradictory, policies have been implemented by authorities at the local level and their impacts on the local British Muslim communities in five metropolitan authorities (Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, and Wakefield).
