    Abstract

    Under the headline of ‘the mobilisation of Muslim women in Denmark', this paper contains a series of introductory considerations as well as a few preliminary findings on the relatively unexplored question of how and why Muslim women in Denmark form organisations, and via their organisations interact with the surrounding society. Previous studies of immigrant mobilisation in Denmark has not paid special attention to gender as a differentiating factor, but this paper argues that there are good reasons to actually do so. Based on a series of qualitative interviews with members of various immigrant women´s organisations, this paper aims to explore patterns of networking among these women, and the level and nature of their interaction with other organisations and societal institutions.
