Abstract

This article reflects from a sociological perspective on the challenges to social integration in the UK in the context of the 9/11, riots involving some Muslim youths in several northern English cities over the summer of 2001, and arguments about the role of faith schools which followed those riots. It examines the competing and intersecting discourses within which debates on social integration are couched, the appeal of Islamism for some Muslims in the context of theories of globalisation and identity, and the development of a British Muslim public sphere in the 1990s, concluding with a discussion of the debate on faith schools and social integration.
