Title: Citizenship and faith: Muslim scout groups

Abstract: One of the accusations levelled at Muslims in the West is a lack of engagement with established institutions and organisations in civil society. As this book seeks to ask what Muslims have to be hopeful about today, and how others may share this hope, we need to uncover the hidden and marginalised stories of where Muslims are not only participating in these spaces, but can also act as the driving force for new growth within organisations. This chapter seeks to draw attention to one such story from the UK Scout Association, through which Muslims have created new spaces for their youth in cities across Britain.
