Politik und Islam by Hendrik Meyer, Klaus Schubert

By Hendrik Meyer, Klaus Schubert

Es gibt verschiedene Arten Muslim zu sein. Aufgabe der Politik in Deutschland ist es, die entsprechenden Bedingungen zu schaffen. Die Er?ffnung der Deutschen Islam Konferenz ist dabei eine wichtige symbolische Geste gegen?ber den Muslimen in Deutschland. Zugleich muss aber auch nach den materiellen Neuerungen gefragt werden, die sich im Verh?ltnis zwischen Politik und Islam ergeben haben bzw. derzeit diskutiert werden. used to be sind die zentralen Konfliktthemen und worin bestehen diese Konflikte? Welche Interessen verfolgen die jeweiligen politischen und muslimischen Akteure bzw. deren Organisationen? Entgegen der teils ideologisch motivierten und h?ufig politisch aufgeladenen Debatte ?ber die Integration des Islam in Deutschland wird hier der Versuch unternommen, dass Verh?ltnis zwischen Politik, Gesellschaft und Islam sachlich zu bestimmen. Anhand aktueller Beispiele und empirischer Befunde stellt der Band wesentliche Akteure und Inhalte sowie ihre Bedeutung innerhalb der Debatte vor. Dabei zeigt sich, dass eine vereinfachende Darstellungen ‚des‘ Islam angesichts der islamischen Binnenpluralit?t wenig hilfreich ist und einer Differenzierung bedarf.
