Description

Philanthropy for Social Justice in the British Muslim Societies

Conference and Workshop



The Centre for the Study of Islam at the University of Glasgow is proud to announce a conference to launch its participation in the international project entitled Philanthropy for Social Justice in Muslim Societies. The aim of the project was to look at the charitable habits of British Muslims and the effects their giving had on aiding or promoting social justice philanthropy. Social justice philanthropy is the granting of philanthropic contributions to non-profit organisations that work for structural change in order to increase the opportunity of those who are the least well off politically, economically and socially.



The aim and objective of this conference is to launch the findings of the British study and then to manifest ways of mobilising, organising and facilitating philanthropic activities in British society in general and the British Muslim societies in particular in support of local social justice initiatives. We hope to disseminate our findings to promote sustainable material and human resources in societies for the empowerment of initiatives for social change, and broader popular participation in development. The Centre for the Study of Islam is committed to further develop this area of research and seeks the participation of all interested parties in our deliberations.
