The final chapter draws together the research findings and analyses and raises issues for further research. It emphasises the importance of unsettling dominant policy paradigms and highlights the role of the ‘empowering Muslim women’ initiatives as a justification for the UK’s ‘war on terror’ and the Prevent agenda. It also explores debates that the UK has moved from multiculturalism to multifaithism and the effects of this on Muslim women. It underlines the need for an intersectional analysis of Muslim women’s lives both in the context of framing policy concerns appropriately and of not reducing such problems to simplified ‘culturalist’ explanations which foster anti-Muslim racism.

Keywords:   multiculturalism, multifaithism, war on terror, intersectional analysis, anti-Mulism racism
