Mapping the Muslim Atlantic Report

‘Mapping the Muslim Atlantic’ — the first report from this project — provides an overview of key links formed between US and UK Muslims, including networks of various Islamic traditions first built in the 1950s and 60s as well as more recent networks of political solidarity and professional ties.
