Faith, ethnicity and place: young people’s everyday geopolitics in Scotland

Executive summary

Research about the experiences of ethnic and religious minority young people was conducted by Newcastle, St Andrews and Edinburgh Universities from 2013-2015.

This research explored the experiences of young people growing up in urban, suburban and rural Scotland, focussing on everyday geopolitics and patterns of Islamophobia among ethnic and religious minority young people. Everyday geopolitics describes the way in which international, national and local issues (economic, political and social) shape, and are shaped by, people’s everyday lives in different contexts.
