(p.245) Chapter Eight Muslim Integration and European Islam in the Next Generation
The Emancipation of Europe's Muslims

Jonathan Laurence

Princeton University Press

This chapter discusses the future prospects for Muslims' political and social integration. A number of the social, cultural, and political adjustments that will characterize Europe in coming generations are already under way, although often the results are not visible to the naked eye. This chapter examines the pre-electoral political behavior and earliest known voting preferences and demographic future of the postcolonial—and post-guestworker—Muslim minorities of Europe. It argues that the most serious threats to successful emancipation—violent extremism among Muslims and right-wing nativism among “host societies”—may ultimately be weakened by a confluence of demographic trends and old-fashioned integration processes.

Keywords:   Muslim integration, European Islam, political integration, social integration, pre-electoral political behavior, Muslim minorities, emancipation, demographic trends, institutional integration
