In diesem Buch erfahren alle, die Flüchtlingen und Asylbewerbern begegnen – privat wie beruflich –, wie sie zu einem guten Miteinander beitragen können. In Deutschland gibt es viele Neubürger und Migranten: Exilanten, Flüchtlinge und Asylbewerber. Ein Großteil kommt aus islamischen Gesellschaften und ist mit manchen anderen Normen und Werten aufgewachsen. Deshalb ist davon auszugehen, dass wir immer öfter Muslimen in Beruf und Alltag begegnen. Sie gehören zu uns. Damit das Zusammenleben und die Zusammenarbeit gelingt, ist ein fundiertes interkulturelles Wissen notwendig: kulturelle Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede, Mentalitäten, Verhaltensregeln, Kommunikationsstrategien und Tabus. Dieses Praxisbuch hilft, Muslime zu verstehen und vermittelt Ideen zum gemeinsamen Handeln – mit zahlreichen Fallbeispielen und Checklisten. Es richtet sich als Beratungsbuch und Arbeitsgrundlage an alle Personen im deutschsprachigen Raum, die mit Muslimen zu tun haben, in privaten und öffentlichen Einrichtungen wie Behörden und Schulen und in Betrieben.

Dawkins and Hitchens have convinced many western intellectuals that secularism is the way forward. But most people don't read their books before deciding whether to be religious. Instead, they inherit their faith from their parents, who often innoculate them against the elegant arguments of secularists. And what no one has noticed is that far from declining, the religious are expanding their share of the population: in fact, the more religious people are, the more children they have. The cumulative effect of immigration from religious countries, and religious fertility will be to reverse the secularisation process in the West. Not only will the religious eventually triumph over the non-religious, but it is those who are the most extreme in their beliefs who have the largest families. Within Judaism, the Ultra-Orthodox may achieve majority status over their liberal counterparts by mid-century. Islamist Muslims have won the culture war in much of the Muslim world, and their success provides a glimpse of what awaits the Christian West and Israel. Based on a wealth of demographic research, considering questions of multiculturalism and terrorism, Kaufmann examines the implications of the decline in liberal secularism as religious conservatism rises - and what this means for the future of western modernity.

Muslims in the West After 9 11

This book is the first systematic attempt to study the situation of European and American Muslims after 9/11, and to present a comprehensive analysis of their religious, political, and legal situations. Since 9/11, and particularly since the Madrid and London bombings of 2004 and 2005, the Muslim presence in Europe and the United States has become a major political concern. Many have raised questions regarding potential links between Western Muslims, radical Islam, and terrorism. Whatever the justification of such concerns, it is insufficient to address the subject of Muslims in the West from an exclusively counter-terrorist perspective. Based on empirical studies of Muslims in the US and Western Europe, this edited volume posits the situation of Muslim minorities in a broader reflection on the status of liberalism in Western foreign policies. It also explores the changes in immigration policies, multiculturalism and secularism that have been shaped by the new international context of the ‘war on terror’. This book will be of great interest to students of Critical Security Studies, Islamic Studies, Sociology and Political Science in general. Jocelyne Cesari is an Associate at Harvard’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the Center for European Studies, teaching at Harvard Divinity School and the Government Department, specializing in Islam and the Middle East.

This open access volume assesses the influence of our changing media environment. Today, there is not one single medium that is the driving force of change. With the spread of various technical communication media such as mobile phones and internet platforms, we are confronted with a media manifold of deep mediatization. But how can we investigate its transformative capability? This book answers this question by taking a non-media-centric perspective, researching the various figurations of collectivities and organizations humans are involved in. The first part of the book outlines a fundamental understanding of the changing media environment of deep mediatization and its transformative capacity. The second part focuses on collectivities and movements: communities in the city, critical social movements, maker, online gaming groups and networked groups of young people. The third part moves institutions and organizations into the foreground, discussing the transformation of journalism, religion, politics, and education, whilst the fourth and final part is dedicated to methodologies and perspectives.

Die differierenden Traditionen der Migrationsforschung in unterschiedlichen Ländern hängen eng mit nationalen Politikmustern und dem Selbstverständnis des jeweiligen Nationalstaats zusammen – entweder affirmativ verstärkend oder kritisch hinterfragend. Stellt man sie nebeneinander, so wird vieles fraglich und diskutierbar, was vorher selbstverständlich schien. Im vorliegenden Band werden die Migrationsforschungstraditionen in zwölf Ländern vorgestellt: den traditionellen Einwanderungsländern Kanada und Australien, vier europäischen Ländern mit inzwischen jahrzehntelanger Einwanderungserfahrung (Großbritannien, Deutschland, Österreich, Niederlande), den neuen Einwanderungsländern Italien, Polen und Japan und den postkolonialen Ländern Indien, Malaysia und Nigeria. Auf diese Weise öffnet der Band aus einer vergleichenden Perspektive heraus Wege zu einem besseren Verständnis unterschiedlicher Forschungstraditionen, und zwar über die traditionellen westlichen Diskussionszusammenhänge hinaus. Wir können die unterschiedlichen Muster der Inklusion und Exklusion von Einwanderern und der intellektuellen Diskurse besser verstehen und relativieren, wenn wir sie mit anderen Lösungen und Denktraditionen konfrontieren. Da auch die Leitdisziplinen der Migrationsforschung in unterschiedlichen Ländern nicht dieselben sind, enthält der Band auch einen Pluralismus der Fachzugänge: Soziologen, Politikwissenschaftler, Ethnologen, Ökonomen und Philosophen definieren Migration, Integration und ihre Beziehungen zu den gesellschaftlichen Strukturen. Sie stellen damit Annahmen in Frage, die im jeweiligen Kontext als selbstverständlich gelten.
