Asma Mustafa’s exhibit explores diversity in the British Armed Forces

Muslims in the Military

Of the 3 million Muslims living in the UK today, it is estimated that only 550 serve in the British Armed Forces. Asma Mustafa’s exhibit examines why so few young Muslims consider a career in the Armed Forces, particularly given the Ministry of Defence’s drive to improve the diversity of its personnel, and high unemployment among British Muslims.

Asma Mustafa is a Research Fellow on Muslims in Britain at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, University of Oxford, and Senior Research Fellow at Linacre College, University of Oxford
