The Muslim Brotherhood in Europe

Overview

Scholars have long debated the intentions of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. Some claim the organization supports terrorism, while others believe it is a positive force for democratization. Though the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe has attracted less attention, many feel they understand the group just as well, for they assume it is closely tied to its Middle Eastern counterpart. Critics believe Europe's Muslim Brotherhood is a suspicious, secretive, and centrally led organization, increasing the ...

Overview

Scholars have long debated the intentions of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. Some claim the organization supports terrorism, while others believe it is a positive force for democratization. Though the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe has attracted less attention, many feel they understand the group just as well, for they assume it is closely tied to its Middle Eastern counterpart. Critics believe Europe's Muslim Brotherhood is a suspicious, secretive, and centrally led organization, increasing the alienation of Europe's Muslims, while sympathizers regard the Brotherhood as a moderate, westernized, and fully integrated force for good. In this volume, experts on Europe's Muslim Brotherhood provide richer, more impartial perspectives on the critical issues relating to the group. It confronts Brotherhood organizations in different European contexts and traces their highly specific relationships with non-Muslim press outlets and authorities.

Editorial Reviews

Bettina Graf
This volume richly documents and critically assesses political movements relating to the Muslim Brothers and their changing ideologies in various European nation states since the 1960s. It systematically addresses not only negative perceptions by western journalists and politicians but also the contradictions and ambiguities within these Muslim organizations. A highly qualified academic approach that helps paint a much-needed, differentiated picture.
Humayan Ansari

A penetrating assessment of the origins and inner workings of an influential and diverse Islamist movement operating in Europe. Where the Brotherhood is widely portrayed as a counter-Enlightenment Trojan Horse, this volume offers an impressively more nuanced understanding of its evolution, moving away from its totalizing dogma and militancy towards political pragmatism as it engages with democracy, secularism, and Muslim minority status.
