This chapter demonstrates how the creation of a transnational institution such as the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) are not the outcome of local efforts from European Muslims at the grassroots level. Instead, the ECFR is the result of a top-down approach intended to project an image of European Islam, which is consistent with the objectives of political Islam. In addition, this chapter explores the role of political Islam on the construction of the image of European Islam and on the notion of Muslim representation in Europe, with particular reference to the historical development of Ireland’s Muslim community.
