Curriculum for Cohesion is developing a method for understanding religion in a multi-faith world, with a focus on Islam, for the use of teachers, lecturers and the judiciary.
We are neither a religious nor an advocacy organisation, but rather aim to foster excellence in the useful study of religion in multi-faith society in an atmosphere of open inquiry.
A Fresh Look at Islam in a Multi-Faith World provides a comprehensive approach to thinking and teaching systematically and deeply about Islam and Muslims in a multi-faith world. It makes the case for a contemporary educational philosophy, called Islamic Critical Realism, to help young Muslims surmount the challenges that they face in their interaction and relationships with non-Muslims and vice versa.
The book explains how this Islamic Critical Realist approach can serve the interpretation of the core, basic elements of Islamic doctrine and practice, so that these essential features of the Muslim way of life can help, rather than hinder, Muslim young people to fulfill themselves and to contribute positively to life in multi-faith democracies.
Finally, the book shows how the Islamic critical realist approach can be used by History, Religious Education and Citizenship teachers to help young Muslims learn deeply and engage successfully with multi-faith society in a globalizing world.
