The Persistence of Sikh and Muslim Conflict in Disaporic Context: Sikhs in the UK

Investigating the persistence of Sikh and Muslim conflict in diasporic context from a Sikh perspective in the UK. This phenomenon has lacked much academic attention and when it is discussed, mainly within the local media, there is an emphasis upon ethnic, inter-ethnic or religious explanations to understand it, my research will thus attempt to conceptualise such antagonism within an original, theoretical context. The fieldwork will generate ethnographic data by adopting a mix of qualitative methods including, in-depth, semi-structured interviews and focus groups. It will provide rich, detailed accounts and develop a thematic insight into the understanding of the persistence of Sikh and Muslim conflict.
