Contents Islam and Diaspora -- Historical Perspectives -- Contemporary Developments and Future Perspectives
Summary The book focusses on the historical emergence and contemporary challenges of Muslim community organizations and their struggle for recognition as ordinary voices in multiethnic and multi-religious civil societies of Western democracies. It offers a range of different perspectives on how Muslim communities position themselves and navigate the social and political landscape shaped by, on the one hand, normalization of ethno-religious diversity and, on the other, ongoing misrecognition and essentialisation of Muslims in the West. The contributions from internationally acclaimed scholars as well as emerging researchers from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland and Australia shine new light on both country-specific similarities and divergences. Contents Islam and Diaspora Historical Perspectives Contemporary Developments and Future Perspectives Target Groups Students and researchers of sociology, religious and historical studies, political science and other related disciplines. The Editors Dr. Mario Peucker is postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing at Victoria University, Melbourne/Australia. Prof. Dr. Dr. Rauf Ceylan teaches Religious Studies at University Osnabrück/Germany
