Canadian converts to Islam focus of study by Australian sociologist
Public Safety Canada is funding a project by an Australian academic to study why Canadians convert to Islam.
This is the first study on the subject ever conducted in Canada and one of a number of studies to receive money from Public Safety through its Kanishka Project, which funds research into terrorism and counterterrorism.
"Canada was a country that had not even one published journal article on converts between its borders. So, I thought, 'Wow, what a great opportunity,'" said Prof. Scott Flower of the University of Melbourne.
