Islam: A Dead End for Integration of Female Immigrants in Denmark?

    Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

    Abstract

    The chapter intends to find out why faith-based Muslim mobilization does not appear to be a preferred strategy for facilitating integrative ways of belonging among immigrant women in Denmark. The data documents that while immigrant women are doing everything they can to facilitate integrative ways of belonging, their activities in this regard are not based primarily on religious identifications. This finding raises interesting questions on whether faith-based (specifically Muslim) community formations face particular obstacles in Denmark.
