“Mapping the Terrain” aims to document important values in Muslim societies, schools, and social contexts. We have two reports summarizing each wave of the study, several research publications, and all of the raw survey data available for further analysis. In total, our survey reached over 40,000 people in 16 different countries.

Check back often! We plan on updating this page regularly as more publications come out of this research. If you have any questions or would like to know more about our publication schedule, please email Thank You!
