The Muslim Humanitarian Sector report provides a summary of the major issues emerging from a year of dialogue based focused groups and stakeholder research aimed at better understanding the barriers to, and opportunities for, greater cooperation with the global Muslim aid and development sector. Under the auspices of the EU Commission’s Bridging Transatlantic Voices Initiative, researchers at the British Council and Georgia State University facilitated two closed-door dialogue-based focused groups with practitioners, policy-makers, and scholars to gain insight into the history and trajectory of engagement between Muslim FBOs and their counterparts in the mainstream international aid and development sector.

The Muslim Humanitarian Sector policy brief provides an expanded discussion on the need for ongoing research about Muslim aid and development actors documented in the report The Muslim Humanitarian Sector: A Review for Policy Makers and NGO Practitioners (British Council, 2017).
