DEARBORN – While Americans have access to more information than ever before thanks to the Internet and other sources, persistent myths about American Muslims and the country's foreign policy have continued to halt progress. But for more than 10 years, the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding has a leader in the quest to dispel many of those myths through education.
IPSU policy briefs created in 2011 touched on nationally-relevant topics including "A Close Look at the Anti-Shari'a Debate," "Global Battleground or School Playground: The Bullying of America's Muslim Children," and "Countering Religion or Terrorism: Selective Enforcement of Material Support Laws Against Muslims." Others centered on foreign policy issues such as the legality of U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan. For the coming months, a study on the impact of Muslim doctors in the United States is among the anticipated releases from ISPU.
