The Domestication of State-Mosque Relations

The Domestication of State-Mosque Relations

(p.133) Chapter Five The Domestication of State-Mosque Relations
The Emancipation of Europe's Muslims

Jonathan Laurence

Princeton University Press

This chapter addresses the failures of the “outsourcing” phase described briefly in Chapter 2, and other events and issues that prompted European interior ministries to wrest control of state–mosque relations from their foreign-ministry counterparts and undertake efforts to bring Islam to the table. First, there is a discussion of socioeconomic indicators of integration, followed by the growing problem of foreign government control over Muslims' religious life, an increasingly felt inadequacy of prayer space and imams, and finally, the rise of Political-Islam activism and Islamist terrorism. Then, the chapter delves into the first of two phases of these efforts that culminated in the establishment of Islamic Councils in the ten European states with sizable Muslim populations.

Keywords:   state–mosque relations, Islam Councils, outsourcing, institutional integration, Muslim religious life, Political-Islam activism, Islamist terrorism
