Does Turkey Turn East? - by Dietrich Jung PDF-dokument
The essay discusses recent changes in Turkey’s foreign policy behavior. It is based on a review of Graham Fuller’s book The New Turkish Republic, which was published by the International History Review in March 2009. Dietrich Jung argues that the signs of independent foreign policy making by Ankara should not be understood as a “turn to the East”. Rather, Turkey’s new role in international politics is dependent on the country’s institutional integration in the West.

The ambition, with Islam in the Nordic and Baltic Countries, of presenting a comprehensive and detailed study of the history, context and development of Islamic institutions and Muslim groups in the Nordic and Baltic countries, is highly relevant. The volume contains many interesting observations and reflections, but all in all the volume is too heterogeneous both as to content, academic level and documentation.

Analyse: Dreaming of a "free Palestine": Muslim Youth in Germany and the Israel-Palestine Conflict - af Götz Nordbruch PDF-dokument
Konflikten mellem Israel og Palæstina er blevet et metafor, der legitimerer muslimsk sammenhold mod uretfærdigheder i almindelighed. I Tyskland er "Palæstina" blevet en identitetsmarkør for muslimsk ungdomskultur og symboliserer en fælles front mod diskrimination af muslimer og angreb på islam.
