This book provides the most comprehensive and reliable picture of Muslims in Europe. It deals with the issues of Islam and Muslims historically as well as in contemporary Europe. Part 1 discusses the philosophical concerns that define the norms both of European policies and of Muslim dynamics with regards to pluralism in this context, taking a broad, general overview of the different frameworks. It examines religious diversity and multiculturalism, as well as Muslims as minorities in fiqh. Part 2 focuses on contemporary European Union law on religious minorities, which offers a purely European perspective on Europe's Muslim communities. It looks at religious discrimination against Muslims and fiqh in modern Europe. Part 3 includes a case study of Muslims in the United Kingdom.

Keywords:   Muslims, Islam, Europe, religious diversity, multiculturalism, United Kingdom, religious minorities, religious discrimination, fiqh, European Union
