23 December 2011: Integrated Report on Interviews with Muslim Leaders (WP6)

In work package 6 of the EurIslam project interviews were held with representatives of Muslim organisations. The main objective of the work package is to assess how leaders of the Muslim community operate. How do they see their role towards their own ethnic community, towards the Muslim community in general and towards the surrounding society in the country where they live?  

The integrated report is structured around four primary research questions;  1) how do leaders present the identity of their organisation; 2) which religious practices do community leaders consider important for the members of their community; 3) which issues are perceived to sperate the religious or ethnic community from the majority population; and, 4) which public debate strategies so Muslim leader use?

15 December 2011: Integrated Report on Survey Analysis (WP4)

The main objective of work package 4 was to move to a subsequent phase of data analysis (cross-tabulations, regression analysis, logistic regression, etc.) on the basis of the survey data gathered in work package 3.  

Through bivariate and multivariate statistical analyses we aim to assess the extent to which cross-national differences on key cultural variables persist when controlling for individual-level background characteristics, such as gender, age, level of education, labour market position, and timing of immigration.  

This integrated survey report gives an overview of the main results of the survey on the attitudes, norms, and values of individual Muslim immigrants,  particularly those relating to democratic norms, gender and family values, ethnicity, religion, and identification with Europe and the receiving society.
