Centre for Studies in Social Management,
Extended call for paper
International Conference on Honour Related Conflicts on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2018 in Copenhagen
Notice: Due to many requests, we are delighted to announce that the abstract submission deadline for the conference has been extended to the 17th of September!
The conference aims to bring together leading researchers and research scholars from all of Northern Europe to exchange and share experiences and research on different aspects of so called honour related conflicts.
Our hope is that the conference will help sharpening access to and understanding of what we define as honour related conflicts. In order to strengthen the overall research field the conference deliberately strives to open the door for reflections and different perspectives from adjacent research areas. In doing so, we hope to gain insights into research that can help nuance the understanding of the field and contribute with new angles and interpretations of the subject and its context in a northern european country.
Therefore, we call for everyone across disciplines to join us with your aspects. Submit your paper to email@example.com no later than the 17th of October.
NB: It is not required to contribute with a paper to attend either of the two conference days. Deadline for registering is the 22nd of October.

Mohammed Hashas’s book points to ways to break away from essentialized and inverted perceptions of Islam and Muslims by focusing on the original thinking of European Muslim thinkers who are providing new theological responses to address the specifics of European Muslims, therefore taking a much needed distance from Middle Eastern and/or salafi religious discourses. His work discusses the specificity of European Islamic thinking and emphasizes the importance of considering it as seriously as we consider thinkers in the Middle East or Asia.
Jocelyne Cesari, Georgetown University and University of Birmingham
In this meticulous and frequently brilliant study of the ideas, practices and precedents of European Islam, Mohammed Hashas illuminates and engages intellectual landscapes at the intersection of geography, theology, philosophy and politics. This book deserves a wide readership. After the dust settles, and it always does, The Idea of European Islam will remain on bookshelves and syllabi for years to come.
Jonathan Laurence, Professor of Political Science, Boston College
In a serious effort to capture the contours and details of European Islam, Mohammed Hashas provides an engaging account of several Muslim thinkers in Europe. He provides a theory to discuss the content of Muslim moral philosophy, theology and politics in conversation with leading thinkers based in Europe and those outside the continent in a search for solutions. Provocative as well as engaging. Anyone interested in one of the most important questions regarding the future of Europe in an age of migration and technological acceleration will find this to be an important book.
