“I am Muslim I am British”, a project conducted by Deen International with Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) funding, concluded as scheduled on 2 May 2009. FCO guidance requires evaluation reports to be completed within three months of the end of project delivery. The university of Islamabad’s evaluation, which is based on over 600 detailed interviews, is currently being finalised and is due to be shortly signed off by the head researcher. The further evaluations in London and Islamabad will be informed by the university’s detailed report.

The evaluations are internal FCO documents and we have no plans to place them in the Library of the House.
