White Islam: A New Religion for Europeans

Project description

Illiberalism and Islam: A complex relationship

The rise of forces that challenge liberal democracies has been linked to increased anti-Islamic rhetoric. Those who oppose cultural liberalism tend to insist on the endorsement of Christian values to resist the supposed Islamisation of Europe. Some scholars paid attention to seemingly paradoxical cases of fringe fluidity as members of marginal ultraconservative groups joined religion-inspired (Islamist) movements. The EU-funded WhIsE project explores instances of deeper convergence and investigates how Islam today offers a viable framework for expressing critique of both economic and cultural liberalism. In particular, WhIsE will focus on an international network of converts to Islam—the Murabitun World Movement—that explored the possible rapprochement between European revolutionary conservatism and Islamic norms.
