Curriculum for Cohesion presents to National Offender Management Service (NOMS)

By Dr. Matthew Wilkinson

18 February 2016. Dr. Matthew Wilkinson, Director of Curriculum for Cohesion, gave a presentation entitled ‘Factors in Muslim criminality: noxious absences and malign presences in young Muslims’ lives’ at the Ministry of Justice to senior civil servants of the National Offender Management Service (NOMS), including Ms. Maggie Bolger, Lead Learning and Development Commissioner, and Mr. Ahtsham Ali, Muslim Adviser at Chaplaincy Headquarters. It was a highly productive meeting and the NOMS team were convinced both by the analytical framework of Dr. Wilkinson’s analysis based on the interaction of noxious absences and malign presences in young Muslims’ lives and of the need for further detailed empirical research on effects of Islam in prisons in order to maximise the benefits and minimise the dangers of Islam for Muslim offenders.
