Western Europe and its Islam ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Immigration from North Africa, Asia and elsewhere has meant a massive influx of Islam into Western Europe. Muslims have organised in many ways and established institutions varying from mosques, halal butchers, schools, broadcasting organisations, and political parties to cemeteries and the like. Slowly but surely the outlines of Islamic communities begun to emerge throughout Western Europe. This book describes and analyses the extent to which there has been a build-up in Western Europe of Islamic institutions recognised by societies. An important driving force behind the institutionalisation are the initiatives of the Muslims themselves, but the larger society intervenes in various ways with establishment of Islamic institutions by stipulating conditions and building in limitations. Includes care studies from the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom."--Jacket
Tourism, ethnic diversity and the city by Jan Rath( Book )
17 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tourism, Ethnic Diversity and the City" fills a gap in existing research in terms of how immigration relates to urban tourism and investigates the new theoretical insights and challenges for empirical research using informative case studies drawn from several advanced economies in Europe, North America and Australia. This enlightening book clearly explores the frontiers of knowledge on the interrelationship between tourism, migration, ethnic diversity and place. Exploring further the manifestations of ethnic diversity that have been commodified by immigrants in gateway cities, questioning how these expressions of culture can be transformed into vehicles for further developing the urban tourism economy. "Tourism, Ethnic Diversity and the City" presents a multidisciplinary approach drawing on key names from the field of geography, sociology, planning and political science and will appeal to those with an interest in any of these areas

Promoting ethnic entrepreneurship in European cities by Jan Rath( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"European cities are increasingly faced with the challenge of integrating people from very diverse backgrounds. As migrant populations increase, so do the opportunities for new business, job creation and international competitiveness. This report shows that ethnic entrepreneurs, however small their venture, contribute to the economic growth of their local area, often rejuvenate neglected crafts and trades, and participate increasingly in the provision of higher value-added services. They can help to promote stronger trading links with their home countries and foster social cohesion in their host communities. The report examines what city authorities are doing to attract ethnic entrepreneurs into their established business communities, and to facilitate the business environment - from the purely financial to providing training and advice. The report presents successful practices and strategies from 28 cities participating in the fourth module of the European Network of Cities for Local Integration Policies for Migrants (CLIP)." -- Cf. p.
