Muslim integration: pluralism and multiculturalism in New Zealand and Australia

Erich Kolig (Editor), Malcolm Voyce (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/Anthology


'Muslim Integration: Pluralism and Multiculturalism in New Zealand and Australia', contributors from a range of backgrounds investigate the state of Muslim integration in New Zealand and Australia. The growing presence of a Muslim minority has invited these two Pacific settler states to closely consider the question of Muslim integration into Western society. This collection discusses the future of religio-cultural pluralism, multicultural policies, and the growing demands for greater emphasis on assimilation. Contributors examine issues such as parallel societies, Islamophobia, radicalization, tolerance, adaptation and mutual adjustment, legal pluralism, the role of mosque architecture, and media depictions of Muslims are examined. Recommended for scholars of anthropology, religious studies, sociology, and political science.
