Islam und die deutsche Gesellschaft (Islam und Politik) by Dirk Halm,Hendrik Meyer

By Dirk Halm,Hendrik Meyer

Der Islam ist nach dem Christentum die zweitgrößte Glaubensgemeinschaft in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Im Vergleich zu anderen Einwanderungsländern hat die Anerkennung der Notwendigkeit, Muslime dauerhaft zu integrieren, in Deutschland jedoch verspätet stattgefunden. Es zeigt sich, in welch großem Maße interessengeleitete Diskurse die gesellschaftliche Wirklichkeit überdecken. Vor diesem Hintergrund unternimmt das vorliegende Buch den Versuch, einen wissenschaftlich objektivierten Blick auf die muslimische Lebenswirklichkeit und die Interaktionen der Muslime mit der deutschen Aufnahmegesellschaft zu werfen. Konkret wird nach dem Kenntnisstand über die muslimische Bevölkerung in Deutschland gefragt und nach den wesentlichen Themen, die ihr Verhältnis zur Mehrheitsgesellschaft bestimmen. Somit unternimmt der Sammelband den Versuch, aus dem deutschen Islamdiskurs der letzten Jahre zentrale und gesicherte Befunde zu extrahieren. Er bezieht sich dabei größtenteils auf empirische Forschungsprojekte zu den Muslimen und ihrem Verhältnis zur deutschen Gesellschaft. So entsteht schließlich ein aktuelles und realistisches Gesamtbild des Verhältnisses von Aufnahmegesellschaft und Muslimen. ​
