Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book Islam in Europe: Diversity, Identity and Influence. The book stems from a project on Christian-Muslim relations in twenty-first-century Europe, based at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy. The geographical scope ranges widely across Europe on national and transnational levels. The varied topics include the problematic notion of 'Euro-Islam', the factors shaping Muslim identities in Europe, generational transformations among Turks abroad, ideological divides in Bosnia, the European Commission's engagement with Islam, effects of EU integration and regional change in Southeast Europe, and the EU reluctance to admit secularised Muslim Turkey as a member. Widening the focus of 'Islam in Europe' beyond immigrant communities in Western Europe, the book has substantial coverage of Southeast Europe, with chapters on Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria and Greece, and Turkey, but, avoiding another kind of exceptionalism, it does not treat the region in isolation.

Keywords: Bosnia-Herzegovina; Bulgaria; Christian-Muslim relations; Europe; Greece; Islam; Turkey
