RELIGIOUS SELFCONCEPTIONS AMONG MUSLIM ADOLESCENTS IN HAMBURG, GERMANY
AbstractThis 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.
