Islam in Europe: An ideological outline

  • Ioannis E. Kotoulas National and Kapodistrian University of Athens


The consecutive attacks in European states, such as France (January 2015, June 2015, November 2015, June 2016, July 2016), Germany (July 2016), Denmark (February 2015) and Belgium (March 2016), perpetrated by Muslim citizens of the respective states brought, once again, to the forefront the discussion on the relationship between European Islam and European values. The steady increase of the size of Muslim communities in Europe over the last decades has contributed signifi cantly to the visibility of Islam along with the spread of Islamist creeds among a non-negligible portion of Europe’s growing Muslim population.
