The presence of large numbers of Muslims within their borders is a relatively new phenomenon for most European states which introduces a radically different way of viewing the world and forces liberal states to reassess their own liberalism. This book explores the varying legal reactions throughout Europe to the rise of Islam. Essays on the legal systems of the leading European jurisdictions are complemented by others on general issues arising out of the impact of Islam in Europe on traditional concepts within European legal systems. In assessing how countries do and should react to demands from muslims within their borders, the relationship between religion and law is brought into question. The position of Muslims within non-Muslim European states is destined to become a key legal issue, not only for Muslims themselves, but for all religious minorities.
