Advisory Boards for Islamic studies

© Nomos

Based on the Recommendations of the German Council of Science and Humanities on the “Further development of the theologies and sciences concerned with religions” of January 2010 the book takes up the suggestion to establish “Advisory Boards for Islamic Studies” which could be entrusted with the task of ensuring the constitutionally required cooperation of Muslim communities. The authors of the book develop and comment on a model regulation which may be used by decision makers in Universities and at the political level when establishing Institutes for Islamic Studies. It is also meant as a contribution to the ongoing debate on how to integrate Islam under the German constitution.
