Islam and society in contemporary Spain (Granada)

Project presentation

Because the presence of Muslim communities in Spain is relatively recent, and because there is not a long tradition of theological study of Islam, we want to start our dialogue with the Islamic tradition by understanding the characteristics of Islam of Spain and the way it interacts with the rest of the Spanish society. Our objective is to identify concrete points of conflicts regarding the understanding of social life that exists in the relationship between Islam and society in Spain. In a second moment, we would like to begin a common reflection and a dialogue with Islamic tradition on these points.

Research approach and methodology / Research area

In order to study the presence of the Islamic tradition in contemporary Spain, we want first to make a multidisciplinary approach that includes a sociological, juridical and historical study. Secondly, we want to make a critical reading of the information of this analysis based on the understanding of Islamic tradition of social life as well as on the Catholic social thought.
