Measuring Perceptions of Prejudice among Native and Non-Native Muslims In Non-Muslim Nations

In the post-9/11 sociopolitical global environment, much discussion has been given to the nature of Islam and the issue of how Muslims are perceived in countries around the world. The purpose of this study will be to examine issues related to prejudice as experienced by Muslims living in primarily non-Muslim regions of the world, such as Western Europe and the United States. Particular attention will be paid to drawing distinctions between Muslims who are native to non-Muslim nations and Muslims who migrated more recently to non-Muslim nations, wit an eye towards determining if these groups perceive or experience prejudicial attitudes from non-Muslims to different degrees.
