Re imagining european identity politics in the 21st century combines an historical political and philosophical analysis about islam and democracy and contributes to the literature on peace and security studies ethnic relations as well as to studies of migration citizenship and nationalism. Muslims in 21 st century europe explores the interaction between native majorities and muslim minorities in various european countries with a view to highlighting different paths of integration of immigrant and native muslims. Against the background of contrasting religious versus secular norms in immigrant communities and in dutch society this study examines how religious identity expression is related to the social integration of dutch muslims within a turkish or moroccan minority groups and b dutch majority groups. The results show that growing global and national inequalities in conjunction with a poorly managed crisis of international migration partially explain rising levels of xenophobia ethnic discrimination the new saliency of ethnic identity and the upsurge and bifurcation of ethnic identity politics. It is apparent that any discussion about british culture and identity should be understood within the relationships of power between different groups and as such any analysis of muslim identity formations in the british context is informed by both colonial british history and contemporary identity politics
