Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Luxembourg. The majority of Muslims arrived in Luxembourg in the 1990s as war refugees. There have been several waves of refugees from the former Yugoslavia. There is no state church in Luxembourg, although the Roman Catholic Church is the most important. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, freedom to exercise one's religion in public and freedom to express religious opinions. The Islamic Cultural Centre of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg is the oldest and the most important of the Muslim organisations. All the Islamic organisations offer Islamic instruction for children and some of them also offer courses for adults. Luxembourg law provides a legal basis for the annulment of forced marriages. The Luxembourg Council of Christian Churches has organised, in collaboration with ING-Europe Marathon Luxembourg and AGIR, an InterFaith-Marathon for a United World in Luxembourg.
