CAABU presents ‘Who Speaks for Islam?’
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.
