Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book Penser l’islam dans la laïcité. Frégosi states his main interest as being to demonstrating that "beyond the tensions between Islam and the idea of laicity in the French context, we can see that an agreement is coming" and that French Islam is "plural, i.e. composed of a plurality of trends, and that the interpretation of laicity by the Muslims is manifold". These questions are investigated in the first part of the book. The second part deals with the stance of Islam vis à vis secularisation in general, and in the French context in particular, including the organisation of Islam in the country. The third part deals with the policy of the French state toward Islam. The fourth and last part focuses on the contemporary challenges faced by French Muslim institutions and the divisions and dialogue between its various trends.

Keywords: French Islam; French Muslim institutions; laicity; Penser l’islam dans la laïcité
