Author(s): Islam, Religions, and Pluralism in Europe
Editors: Aslan, Ednan, Ebrahim, Ranja, Hermansen, Marcia (Eds.)
Against religious exclusivism
Religious and ethnic diversity have become crucial and pressing concerns in Europe: in particular, the presence of Muslims, their integration, citizenship, and how to deal with the influx of refugees. Can we draw on the resources of religions and their leaders for models of peaceful coexistence or do religious identities constitute obstacles to cooperation and unity?
This volume treats Islam, Religions, and Pluralism in Europe based on a 2014 conference in Montenegro. Experts analyze Islam and Muslim issues as well as Christian perspectives and state social policies. Case studies drawn from Western and Eastern Europe including the Balkans, constructively review and interrogate diverse theological, philosophical, pedagogical, legal, and political models and strategies that deal with pluralism.
