Gesellschaften zwischen Multi- und Transkulturalität( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die zunehmende Immigration aus islamisch geprägten Staaten stellt eine kulturelle und sozialpolitische Herausforderung dar. Kulturelle Differenz wird dabei unter unterschiedlichen theoretischen Prämissen diskutiert: VertreterInnen des Multikulturalismus gehen davon aus, dass ein Zusammenleben verschie- dener Kulturen nicht nur wünschbar, sondern auch möglich ist. <<Transkulturalität>> impliziert hingegen, dass Kulturen keine homogene, abgrenzbare Entitäten sind und es im Hinblick auf soziale Kohäsion auch nicht wünschbar ist, dass soziale Gruppen kulturelle Differenzen akzentuieren oder gar politisch instrumentalisieren. -- Covertext

Religion, the public sphere, and identity politics: how a radical Muslim organization defies the populist right in Switzerland( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: The increasing visibility of Islam and the advance of right-wing anti-immigration politics in Switzerland have led to conflicts between assimilationists and Islamists. By focusing on two protagonists of this conflict - the populist right-wing Swiss People's Party (SVP) and the Islamist organization Islamic Central Council Switzerland (IZRS) - we deliver an analysis of their strategies and counter-strategies. We argue that the public visibility of Islam has become the main contested issue between both parties. Whereas the former strives for containing 'the Islamic threat' by pushing Islam out of the public sphere, the latter uses public visibility of Islam to establish this religion as an integral part of Swiss society. We further argue that both parties resort to well-developed boundary-making identity politics to either consolidate their collective identity (the IZRS) or to stigmatize the opponent (the SVP). We also show that both parties actively engage in constructing internally homogeneous and externally exclusive imagined communities
