MBRN – Welcome

The Muslims in Britain Research Network (MBRN) was established by a group of academics in 1992 to encourage and promote the scholarly study of Muslims and Islam in Britain. Its main aims are to promote and share academic research into British Muslims and to build connections between academics, students, professionals, researchers, journalists and practitioners from all backgrounds with an interest in this subject.

Connect with MBRN’s mailing list

The MBRN mailing list exists so that members may share their recent research and activities, ask questions about research issues, put ideas forward for evaluation, and participate in discussions.

To join the mailing list, please visit the MBRN Yahoo Group page and click on the ‘Join This Group!’ button. Please make sure to include a short statement about yourself in order to establish eligibility to join the Network.

Keep up to date with news, links, event announcements and more through the MBRN Twitter Account, MBRN Facebook Group and MBRN Facebook Page. We have also recently created an MBRN WhatsApp group, which existing members can join by emailing us at MuslimsinBritainRN@gmail.com.

MBRN events

MBRN typically holds two one-day conferences per year, along with occasional events for specialist groups such as early career academics in the field. We are currently planning an event to be held in January 2020 on Muslim charity in partnership with the Muslim Charities Forum, as well as a three-day conference on Islamic education to be held in April 2020. Please follow our Conference page for details and updates.
