Summary
  • "This book investigates Muslims' struggle for recognition as equal citizens in Australia, Great Britain and Germany: what measures have been adopted by Muslims to achieve active citizenship? How do socio-political and socio-economic factors impede or advance this process? How have Muslim groups responded to such barriers? These multifaceted developments, which have unfolded in different ways in the three national settings, provide the focus for this study. Particular attention is devoted to the interplay between historical, institutional, political, and identity dimensions of Muslims' paths towards active citizenship"--
  • "Muslim Active Citizenship in the West investigates the emergence and nature of Muslims' struggle for recognition as full members of society in Australia, Great Britain and Germany. What actions have been taken by Muslims to achieve equal civic standing? How do socio-political and socio-economic factors impact on these processes? And how do Muslims negotiate their place in a society that is often regarded as sceptical - if not hostile - towards Muslims' desire to belong? This book sheds new light on Muslims' path towards citizenship in Australia, Great Britain and Germany. Existing research and statistics on Muslims' socio-economic status, community formation, claim-making and political responses, and the public portrayal of Islam are systematically examined. These insights are tested 'through the eyes of Muslims', based on in-depth interviews with Muslim community leaders and other experts in all three countries. The findings offer unique perspectives on Muslim resilience to be recognised as equal citizens of Islamic faith in very different socio-political national settings. Pursuing an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, this book examines the country-specific interplay of historical, institutional, political, and identity dimensions of Muslims' active citizenship and will be invaluable for students and researchers with an interest in Sociology, Religious Studies and Political Science"--
