The report provides a snapshot of the multitude of challenges and barriers Muslims face in coming forward and reporting; additionally it provides a brief overview of the institutional responses to Muslims who are victims of crime, which includes faith-based organizations, community organizations, traditional victim service providers, and the criminal justice system.  The report then ends with key recommendations offered by study respondents in improving responses to crime victimization in the Muslim community.
