Chapter Summary

The historical contribution of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) remains a reference for many European Muslims, at least for those who situate themselves in proximity to this school of thought, which now claims the allegiance of a majority of Muslim militants of Arab origin, without limiting itself strictly to that group. The Brothers offer a global method for being Muslims in Europe. They adapt their discourse to this context in order to promote their objective, which is consciousness-raising. The Muslim Brothers are neither an evanescent reality nor a homogeneous structure. By the side of their traditional structures, they construct modern organizations, relatively hierarchical in nature, that are more and more visible.

Keywords: European Muslims; Muslim Brotherhood (MB)
