Islam and International Relations series (Gerlach Press)

Islam and International Relations seriesThe Islam and International Relations series publishes books that addresses the role of Islam in the study and practice of the ‘international’, in terms of both conventional relations among modern states and a broader view on interactions among humans and their societies that go beyond their locality. It aims to provide a platform for advancing research on Islam and the ‘international’ with the aim to develop and sustain a body of knowledge that addresses the theories and practices of the Islamic civilization and of Muslim societies as regards international affairs, and hence enriches and diversifies the disciplines of International Relations and Geopolitics with contributions from Islamic history and thought.

European Muslims and their Foreign Policy Interests: Identities and Loyalties

European Muslims and their Foreign Policy Interests: Identities and Loyalties” by Imène Ajala

In a global context marked by terrorist threats, Muslim communities in the West have come under increasing scrutiny. Sensitive questions on identity arise with regard to their foreign policy interests and their loyalties.

Topics covered include:
– Relations between European Muslims and international issues
– Political opportunity structures
– Organization and institutionalization of Islam
– Diaspora and transnational dimensions
– The securitization of Islam
– Foreign policy and loyalty

This book investigates the foreign policy interests and political mobilization of Muslims in Europe, specifically in France and Great Britain, contributing to shed light on these difficult questions.
