This special issue on Gender, Religion and Migration builds on a symposium at Middlesex University held in November 2011 to explore comparisons and contrasts across different religious communities ranging from Muslim, Catholic, Pentecostal to Buddhist. This collection of articles brings together empirical research from different academic disciplines in the social sciences, including sociology, geography and anthropology and uses a range of methods to engage with and research different migrant groups in particular urban contexts. While some papers focus on individual case studies to explore the experiences of specific faith groups, others offer a comparative perspective gathering data from different locations and religions.
