The Islamic Social Attitudes Survey Project (ISAS)

The Islamic Social Attitudes Survey Project (ISAS) in 2008 was a comparative study on Islamic Religiosity and Social Attitudes among college students in majority-Muslim countries. The religiosity components were designed to probe issues of religious practice, belief, behavior, belonging, religious networks, spiritual experience, and family religiosity. Social Attitude modules included women’s rights, minority rights, democracy, and relations with the West.

Alessandra L. González, an ISR Research Fellow, was the principal investigator of the ISAS and worked in collaboration with an advisory team at Baylor University in conjunction with advisors at local universities where the survey data is collected.
