Current ISPU Research Projects
Muslim Sexual Health Survey
In order to investigate the relationship
and sex beliefs of Muslims in Canada and the US we are conducting a brief
online survey. There is currently very little research on Muslims’ relationship
and sexual beliefs and further research us required.
Participation in this study involves
completing a 45 minute online survey. There are questions that are sexual in
nature but responses will be completely confidential and any information that
could identify you (your draw entry) is kept separate and cannot be matched to
your responses. The survey is hosted by a Canadian server.
This study could potentially benefit both the North
American Muslim community as well as larger society. We know very little about
Canadian and American Muslims’ opinions and beliefs around romantic and sexual
behaviours and relationships. This study will help in understanding more about
Muslims’ opinions and beliefs around romantic and sexual relationships.
Mainstream society could benefit as issues highlighted for Muslims from this
study, may be relevant to other, similar, communities within larger society.
Additionally, mainstream society would learn more about North American Muslims
and their realities enabling relevant mainstream organizations to better serve
