Islamophobia Studies Yearbook 2021, Vol. 12

Focus: ‘Political Islam

The notion of ‘political Islam’ has increasingly found its way into the discourse on Islam in various countries, especially in Europe, in recent years. It has become the subject of debate in opinion articles, a theme for think tanks and policymakers as well as political institutions. Institutions such as the Dokumentationsstelle Politischer Islam, a fund of the Republic of Austria, have been established. Discriminatory policies such as the headscarf ban have been legitimized with the argument of the fight against ‘political Islam.’ Thus, these discourses often determine not only debates and policies about Islamism or Jihadism, but the everyday lives of various Muslims. This year’s Islamophobia Studies Yearbook is dedicated to a critical analysis of the discourse on ‘political Islam.’ Among other things, we are interested in questions such as:

- What images of ‘political Islam’ are being created? How are these negotiated in the media or politics?

- In what continuity do images of ‘political Islam’ stand to images about pan-Islamism and thus to colonial and imperial discourses about the alleged political danger of Islam?

- What changes have these discourses brought to security regimes and other systems of exploitation?

- What forms of resistance can we observe and how successful or not are they?

- What transnational and global entanglements are discernible and how do they change international politics? Are there entanglements with other European and non-European countries? What role do think tanks play in this?
