Muslims comprise a significant and growing percentage of the population in the United Kingdom. Muslim youth in this country face a unique set of challenges related to cultural identity and acculturation. Because of perceived discrimination and frequent identity issues, they are often considered at risk for radicalization. This article presents theoretical frameworks for cultural identity, acculturation, and radicalization and outlines implications these concepts have for social work practice with Muslim youth in the United Kingdom. The article provides suggestions and recommendations concerning practice and training for social workers and other professions working with Muslim youth, including religious leaders and teachers. © 2017 Taylor & Francis.
