Muslims & European Multiculturalism

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


Anti-Muslim sentiment in post-9/11 Europe contends that Muslims compound their 'alien' status by claiming special treatment from their 'hosts'. But what if the aspiration to a recognised 'Muslim' identity is itself characteristically European? In the British context, Tariq Modood argues that a healthily multicultural society needs to accommodate religion as a valid social category -and rethink Europe so that the Muslim 'them' becomes part of a plural 'us'.
