From Allah to Prada (Forum, 2006) is the title of the first report of an ongoing research project among young Muslims in Amsterdam. From interviews with a panel of insider experts (professionals as well as young Muslims) a typology has been constructed, based on two dimensions (career and religious orientation). The aim of the study is to monitor developments in cultural identity, lifestyle and religion among young Muslims.
Dirk J. Korf, Ph.D., is associate professor in criminology at the Universities of Amsterdam and Utrecht. His main fields of research are lifestyles, patterns and trends of drug use and drug trafficking, as well as crime and crime prevention among ethnic minorities.

One thought on “ISIM/IMES: From Allah to Prada

  1. Apparently of the inner city blacks in urban America who dropped out of school the overwheming majority are unemployed and or
    in jail. Instead of treating the symptoms by hiring more police and building more prisons, why isn’t the
    money spent weeding out the root cause of the problem, poverty?
