Project: Islam Politics in Austria
Funded in by the Brookings Foundation and the European Union.
The projects here have focused on Muslim life in Austria, Muslim youth in Austria and Islam politics in Austria, especially in conjunction with the rise of the radical right. In this context, the American-based Brookings commissioned a study on the situation of Islam in Austria, a report about it can be found here and is part of a multinational project assessing the situation of Islam in different European countries. The EU has funded the so-called I-Report on Reporting and Documentation of Islamophobic Incidents.
