Professor Tariq Modood.

Over the last 25 years Professor Modood has worked on: Theory and politics of racism, racial equality, multiculturalism and secularism, with especial reference to British Asian Muslims; ethnic identities, national identities and the 'second generation'; ethnic disadvantage and progress in employment and education; comparisons within and between Western Europe and North America; the politics of being Muslim in the West. The topics I am currently most focused on are the political theory and sociology of multiculturalism, interculturalism and secularism.

He was the Bristol Director of the Leverhulme Programme on Migration and Citizenship, with UCL, which consisted of 8 projects running between 2003-09. Professor Modood co-led EMILIE: A European Approach to Multicultural Citizenship (with 8 EU partners), an EU 6th Framework project (2006-09) and he followed this up with a 15 countries project, Accept Pluralism: Tolerance, Pluralism and Social Cohesion (2010-2013).
