Muslim Responses to the State-Islam Consultations

(p.198) Chapter Seven The Partial Emancipation
The Emancipation of Europe's Muslims

Jonathan Laurence

Princeton University Press

This chapter addresses the achievements of state–mosque relations and the “incorporation” outcomes that can be measured so far. What is the stability and performance of Islam Councils across the countries? How have these policies conditioned integration outcomes and political moderation, and what impact do they have on the long-term prospects of Muslims' everyday integration in Europe? This chapter empirically traces the effects of European policy approaches and finds that they have had a dramatic effect on Muslim communities: their domestic orientation, their reformed organizational structures, their outspoken distancing from violence and radicalism, and their outward commitment to playing by the rules of the game. Host societies as well as Muslim community leaders—and the scope of their agendas—have been transformed by the experience of institutional integration.

Keywords:   state–mosque relations, incorporation outcomes, institutional integration, European policy approaches, domestic orientation, organizational structures
