Abstract

An exploration of fathering behaviours and experiences among UK Asian men. This study explores the interplay of cultural, religious, economic and social factors in the fathering behaviour and experiences of Asian men in the UK. It focuses on four minority religio-ethnic ‘groups’: Bangladeshi Muslims, Pakistani Muslims, Gujarati Hindus and Punjabi Sikhs. Researchers and policy-makers are interested in family and parenting issues but have a limited understanding of parenting behaviour and experiences in minority ethnic populations, especially with regard to fatherhood. This report covers: what fatherhood means to Asian men in terms of identity, role and responsibility ; experiences of fatherhood ; the extent and type of fathering contributions ; individual, family and wider influences on fathering behaviours and experiences; and the implications for policy-makers and practitioners.
