CAABU presents ‘Who Speaks for Islam?’

Is Islam to blame for terrorism? Why is there so much anti-Americanism in the Muslim world?Who are the extremists? Where are the moderates? What do Muslim women really want?


The Muslim West Facts Project initiative shares the views of the world’s Muslim populations and the West globally with world leaders.

By collecting and analyzing public opinion data throughout the world’s
Muslim populations and the West for the next decade and beyond, including people’s beliefs about education, religion, culture, and democracy, the initiative intends to inform the dialogue about Muslims and the West. 

This is based on a commitment to the principle that accurate collection and dissemination of the opinions and aspirations of persons around the globe is vital to an informed understanding of the world in which we live.
