RELIGIOUS SELFCONCEPTIONS AMONG MUSLIM ADOLESCENTS IN HAMBURG, GERMANY

Ursula Günther

Abstract


This article considers five recent empirical studies dealing with religious selfconceptions
among Muslim adolescents and assembles selected results. Embedded
in the particular German migration context, these results emphasise that changes of
paradigm within the discourses about Islam and Muslims have taken place since
Huntington’s scenario of the clash of civilisations. The fact that researchers are now
attending to the societal reality of religious and cultural pluralism indicates that
perspectives on religion and religiosity among Muslims have undergone considerable
changes. The conclusion outlines briefly the challenges for religious education
with regard to the contextual changes in migration and an increase in individual
approaches to religion and religiosity.
