Questions about the impact of 9/11 on Muslim communities in the European Union in terms of social interaction and conceptualization of Muslim identity led to the comparative project “Europe’s Muslim communities: Security and Integration post 9/11” from 2003 to 2007. The project was initated by Ethnobarometer, the International Research Network on Interethnic Politics and Migration, and directed by Alessandro Silj. It involved national research teams in six EU countries (Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands). ISIM was the Dutch partner of the project. More information
ISIM is the Netherlands-based partner in the latest Ethnobarometer project called Europe’s Muslim Communities – Security and Integration post-11 September. The project is operational in six countries: Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. This research project focuses on inter-ethnic relations, perceptions, and discourse. The other participants are leading research groups in Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Germany. A central element in the research methods of this project consists of focus groups that in their composition – age, ethnicity, political, and religious commitment – reflected the composition of local communities where conflict or inter-ethnic tension have occurred.
The field research in the Netherlands was carried out by Martijn de Koning (ISIM) and five research assistants.
