NEXT EVENT – FULL
We have reached capacity for Dr Jasjit Singh’s upcoming Research Presentation event. If you were unable to RSVP in time, do not be disappointed as further presentations of the research will take place around the UK in the coming weeks and months. Follow Dr Jasjit Singh through his social media channels (linked below) to find out where and when these will be held.
Dr Jasjit Singh’s recent research project investigates the nature of “Sikh ‘radicalisation’ in Britain” – an issue which has received much political and media attention, but little academic attention to date.
He has carried out an in depth review of existing media reports and research on Sikh local/transnational networks in Britain, examining the impact of Sikh institutions and organisations on British Sikh mobilisation and activism, and exploring the factors which may contribute to instances of Sikh activism and violence. The results of this research will help us understand how British Sikhs learn about, interpret and act upon events in Britain and in other parts of the Sikh diaspora, and the nature and types of Sikh activism in Britain.
