Benchmarking Muslim Well-Being in Europe: Reducing Disparities and Polarizations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Examining an urgent topic for many nations around the world, this book aims to reverse the commonly held belief that recent Muslim immigrants to Europe have failed to integrate satisfactorily into European culture. The authors look at Muslim communities in Germany, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom—countries with a range of differing strategies for coordinating ethnic and state identities. Using the European Parliament’s benchmarking guidelines, surveys, and other data, they find several locations where Muslims are in fact more integrated than popularly assumed. Additionally, they show that many Muslim communities, despite a desire for fuller integration, find their opportunities blocked.
