Abstract

This paper calls for the use of music and poetry to make a concerted effort towards bridging the gap between communities in the UK. This paper proposes that bringing youth from various parts of the community can lead to a reduced risk of religious radicalisation by: a) creating a sense of community and belonging, b) providing a platform through music and poetry to express frustrations and disenfranchisement felt by youth.
