Understanding Muslims as citizens of Europe


Senior scholars and young researchers met in Bologna to locate the place of Muslims in European societies. LEON BUSKENS reviews the debates.

Europaeum has sponsored several scholarly meetings and seminars on Islam-in-Europe during past years. On two days last November, an international workshop on Islam and Citizenship in Europe was held in Bologna, coordinated by Dr Ruba Salih, well-known for her research on Moroccan immigrants in Italy and on multiculturalism and gender.
