Muslim Women and Power

Winner of the W.J.M. Mackenzie Book Prize 2017 This book provides an account of Muslim women’s political and civic engagement in Britain and France. It examines their interaction with civil society and state institutions to provide an understanding of their development as political actors. The authors argue that Muslim women’s participation is expressed at the intersections of the groups and society to which they belong. In Britain and France, their political attitudes and behaviour are influenced by their national/ethnic origins, religion and specific features of British and French societies. Thus three main spheres of action are identified: the ethnic group, religious group and majority society. Unequal, gendered power relations characterise the interconnection(s) between these spheres of action. Muslim women are positioned within these complex relations and find obstacles and/or facilitators governing their capacity to act politically. The authors suggest that Muslim women’s interest in politics, knowledge of it and participation in both institutional and informal politics is higher than expected. This book will appeal to students and scholars of politics, sociology, gender studies and social anthropology, and will also be of use to policy makers and practitioners in the field of gender and ethno-religious/ethno-cultural policy.

Muslim Britain

This edited collection is a cogent exploration of how the events of September 11 and the subsequent war on terror have impacted on the lived experiences of British South Asian Muslims in a number of important spheres, namely, religious and ethnic identity, citizenship, Islamophobia, gender and education, radicalism, media and political representation. The contributors to this volume are specialists in the fields of sociology, social geography, anthropology, theology and law. Each of the chapters explores the positions of South Asian Muslims from different analytical perspectives based on various methodological approaches. A number of the chapters carry primary empirical analysis, therefore making this one of the most pertinent compilations in this field. Other contributions are more discursive, providing valuable polemics on the current positions of British South Asian Muslims.

The Construction of Muslim Identities in Contemporary Brazil

This book represents a contribution to the studies of Muslim minorities, and can be compared and contrasted to the analysis of Islam in Europe and in the USA. Besides presenting data about the largest Muslim community in Latin America, an area of the globe that is still ignored by those who study the “Muslim diaspora”, this book contributes to the understanding of religious dynamics in minority contexts, as well as issues involving integration of immigrants.

Feeling integrated  yet not accepted

Why do Muslim immigrant women in Berlin feel integrated, but not accepted by the German society? Ivana Jurisic gives the answer to this and many other questions about integration, as well as about the identity of immigrants in this in-depth study. The stories of the interviewed women give a valuable insight into the challenges of integration, such as discrimination and finding employment. She shows how the Muslim immigrant women believe they can lead the integration process, how education of their children is their foremost priority, and what strategies the women use to gain acknowledgment of the German society.

Muslim Women and Shari ah Councils

In dit boek staan de ervaringen van Zuidaziatische moslimvrouwen centraal. In het Verenigd Koninkrijk doen sommigen van hen beroep op het religieus recht – m.n. de Shariah – om te bemiddelen bij huwelijkskwesties. Deze religieuze rechtspraak wordt door de Britse Staat niet erkend, te meer omdat in het Westen het beeld heerst dat vrouwen in de shariah-rechtspraak steeds aan het kortste eind trekken. Het bestaan van dergelijke onofficiële bemiddelingsinstanties vormt een uitdaging voor de seculiere staat. Immers, hoe ver mag de hang naar een eigen culturele identiteit van een minderheid gaan? Er zou zich vandaag de dag een nieuwe invulling van de shariah aan het ontwikkelen zijn, één die zich nog steeds inspireert op de moslimtraditie, maar die de vrouw niet langer onderdrukt. Het fenomeen van de shariah, als onderdeel van een claim naar meer autonomie vanwege de moslimgemeenschap, is tot op heden weinig onderzocht.

Muslim Women   s Political Participation in France and Belgium

This book outlines the principal motivations, opportunities and barriers to Muslim women’s political participation in France and francophone Belgium. Easat-Daas draws on in-depth comparative contextual analysis along with semi-structured interview material with women from France and Belgium who self-identify as Muslim and are active in a variety of modes of political participation, such European Parliamentarians, Senators, councilwomen, trade-union activists and those engaged in grass-roots political movements. This provides an alternative framing of Muslim women, removed from the tired and often exaggerated stereotypes that portray them as passive objects or sources of threat, instead highlighting their remarkable resilience and consistent determination. Through exploring the intersecting fault lines of racial, Islamophobic and gendered struggles of Muslim women in these two cases, this book also sheds new light on the role of ‘European Islam’, political opportunity structures, secularism and Muslim women’s dress.

Benchmarking Muslim Well being in Europe

"This highly topical book aims to undermine unsubstantiated myths by examining Muslim integration in Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, states which dominate the debate on minority integration and the practice of Muslim religious traditions. These nations have a range of alternative relationships between religion and the state, as well as strategies for coordinating individuals' ethnic and state identities. Using the European Parliament's benchmarking guidelines, surveys and other non-official data, the authors find that in some areas Muslims are in fact more integrated than popularly assumed and suggest that, instead of failing to integrate, Muslims find their access to integration blocked in ways that reduce their life chances in the societies in which they are now permanent residents. The book will have an impact on research and policy especially with the commencement of the EU-wide integration benchmarking effort and will be an excellent resource for researchers, academics and policy makers."--Publisher's website.

Some Still More Equal Than Others

Inequality limits young people's chances in life. Yet equality is the basis of democracy and Article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights secures the rights and freedoms of the young "without discrimination on any ground". Research shows that inequality - in opportunities, wealth or health, for example - is widespread in Europe and that the citizens of richer countries do not necessarily have healthier profiles than those of poorer countries. The citizens of egalitarian countries, on the other hand, have the highest life expectancy. This book examines many aspects of inequality and opportunity for young people including schooling, employment, social exclusion, labour migration, trafficking, disability, cultural and religious discrimination, youth work, and opposition and resistance.
