MetadataShow full item record
The Immigration crisis and thousands of refugees arriving to Europe in a search for a better, more dignified life, and the constantly growing concern caused by the terrorists from ISIS contribute to islamophobic sentiment in Europe. Bosniaks, or Bosnian Muslims, are the largest diaspora from the former Yugoslavia in Western Europe. It is estimated that out of Bosnia and Herzegovina there is more than 3 million Bosniaks and people from Bosnia. First of all, we can speak about war refugees, who left their homeland between 1989 and 1995 (during the war after the fall of Yugoslavia) and about representatives of the earlier economic and political emigration from Yugoslavia (so called gastarbaiters). Nowadays, anti-Muslim sentiment in Europe on the one hand, and the growing radicalization of Muslim immigrant communities in European main cities, the involvement of various immigrant communities in the Syrian conflict and the activities of the Islamic State, have an influence on the life of Bosniaks living abroad. In my paper I present the results of my research on immigrant Bosniak communities in Ljubljana, Vienna, Berlin and Oslo. I analyze their political and cultural activities as a their reaction to recent events such as the Paris attacks in November 2015.
