Turning Point Pim Fortuyn series – Pim Fortuyn and the racialization of Dutch Muslims: Introduction

In a series of posts based upon my Dutch essay of five years ago, I look at how Fortuyn reproduced the idea of Muslims as the ultimate Other and how his ideas were both a break with and a continuation from earlier periods. I do this on the basis of an analysis of his book (Against) The Islamization of our culture, my previous research in Gouda and my current research into interventions by Muslims in the public domain.
