Beschreibung / Abstract

Conspicuously, Islam has become a key concern in most European societies with respect to issues of immigration, integration, identity, values and inland security. As the mere presence of Muslim minorities fails to explain these debates convincingly, new questions need to be asked: How did »Islam« become a topic? Who takes part in the debates? How do these debates influence both individual as well as collective »self-images« and »image of others«?
Introducing Switzerland as an under-researched object of study to the academic discourse on Islam in Europe, this volume offers a fresh perspective on the objective by putting recent case studies from diverse national contexts into comparative perspective.

Kritik

»Der Band [leistet] einen vielumfänglichen und innovativen Beitrag zur Analyse des Islam und von Muslimen in einem Europa, das nicht nur christlich geprägt ist, sondern auch einen eigenen, besonderen Begriff des Religiösen entwickelt hat, der sich erst in der Konfrontation wirklich offenbart. Die damit einhergehende Relativierung sowohl des Religiösen als auch des Säkularen eröffnet eine vielversprechende Perspektive für die soziologische Religionsforschung.«
Heidemarie Winkel, Soziologische Revue, 40/3 (2017)

«Ein gelungener und aufgrund seiner vielen rezent durchgeführten empirischen Einzelstudien auch sehr aktueller Beitrag zum Verständnis von Islamdebatten in Europa.«
Ricarda Stegmann, SGMOIK-Bulletin, 39 (2014)

»Insgesamt weisen die verschiedenen Einzelfallstudien eindrucksvoll nach, wie zentral der Religionsdiskurs für die normativen Grenzziehungen und Identitätsfragen des Ich und Wir in westeuropäischen Ländern ist.«
Jan Achim Richter, Portal für Politikwissenschaft, 12.03.2014
