  Add to Calendar 2014-03-20 9:30 2014-03-21 13:00 Europe/Paris Localized Islam(s): Institutions, Ideas and Practices in the European Context

This conference aims to look at Islam in Europe "through the Balkan prism". What are the historical, institutional and religious traits that characterise endogenous European Muslims? How have they recast themselves vis-à-vis European models and ideas? What can their experiences teach us about forms and challenges of European Islam? Theoretically, we will take into account both top-down institutional factors that shape religious actors' politics and a bottom-up perspective which emphasises traits of faith communities and their practice of religiosity.
