Contextualising Islam in contemporary Spain

Lecture by Jose-Luis LLAQUET at the second International Congress of PLURIEL in Rome.

I recently studied the presence of contemporary Islam in Spain from a multidisciplinary perspective. In this work, I have recently seen the exponential growth of Islamic associations and foundations that have been established in Spain. Similarly, I find that there is no scientific research that analyzes civil regulation and its statutory regime, the purpose of representative entities, organizations and members, budgets and activities conducted, their relationship with different Muslim schools or other groups, foreign conflicts and internal or external conflicts.

Titre original : “Contextualising Islam in contemporary Spain”

Conférence de Jose-Luis LLAQUET lors du deuxième Congrès international de PLURIEL à Rome.

J’ai récemment étudié la présence de l’islam contemporain en Espagne dans une approche pluridisciplinaire. Dans ce travail, j’ai pu observer ces derniers temps la croissance exponentielle des associations et fondations islamiques installées en Espagne. De même, je constate qu’il n’y a aucune recherche scientifique qui analyse la réglementation civile et son régime statutaire, le but des entités, les organismes et membres représentatifs, les budgets et les activités menées, leur relation avec les différentes écoles musulmanes ou avec d’autres groupes, les conflits étrangers ainsi que les conflits intérieurs ou extérieurs.

محاضرة ألقاها خوسيه لويس ياكيه في المؤتمر الدولي الثاني الذي نظّمته شبكة PLURIEL في روما.

درستُ مؤخّراً حضور الإسلام المعاصر في إسبانيا من وجهة نظر متعددة الاختصاصات. ولاحظتُ من خلال دراستي هذه نموًا هائلاً ومتسارعاً للجمعيات والمؤسسات الإسلامية التي تم تأسيسها في إسبانيا. كذلك، اكتشفتُ غياب أيّ بحث علميّ يُحلِّلُ الأنظمة المدنيّة ونظامها التشريعي، والغاية الكامنة وراء الكيانات التمثيليّة، والهيئات والأعضاء، والميزانيات والأنشطة المنفّذة، وعلاقتها بالمدارس الإسلامية المختلفة أو بمجموعات أخرى، والصراعات الأجنبية، والصراعات الداخلية أو الخارجية.
