Reported by The Courier – the news we share raises awareness of equality issues being reported in the media.
St Andrews and Dundee universities have been given funding to research how Muslims and Roma people have integrated into local communities.

The two are part of a consortium of institutes across Europe being awarded a €1 million grant by the Volkswagen Foundation.

It will explore the challenges of misrecognition, the experience of a person being treated as if they do not belong to a society they have grown up in and feel part of.

The research will chart the experience of minorities and their inclusion in, or their alienation from, the majority in society.

Dundee University’s contribution to the project will examine how members of the Muslim community in Scotland experience being under surveillance as they go about their everyday lives, and the impact this has on their sense of belonging to the country.
