One key aspect of this work has been the ongoing partnership between our team and the Christchurch Muslim community since the project was first proposed; that participatory approach has been critical to the success of the project. We would especially like to acknowledge the involvement of our Community Reference Group. Their engagement has been greatly appreciated and their insights have been invaluable helping to guide the research process and analysis. Similarly, we would like to thank our Muslim Research Assistant team for all their work on this project over the past two and a half years.
Most importantly, we would also like to thank everyone who participated or supported the March 15 project.
