Integration. Muslime in Deutschland.: Exklusionsmechanismen by Christoph Mauch

By Christoph Mauch

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Soziologie - faith, be aware: 1,0, Universität Trier (Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar: Das Konzept der Interkulturalität, 37 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In der bundesdeutschen Öffentlichkeit und in der einschlägigen Literatur wird häufig davon ausgegangen, dass Integrationsprobleme auf Kultur und faith beruhen. Die Ausgangsproblematik ist hierbei, dass eine christlich eingefärbte säkulare Mehrheitsgesellschaft einer (zahlenmäßig türkisch dominierten) muslimischen Minderheit gegenüber steht.

Häufig werden der Islam und die Muslime mit einer in einigen Ländern praktizierten radikal-fundamentalistischen Ausprägung gleichgesetzt, insbesondere nach dem eleven. September 2001 und auch durch die Anschläge von London, welche von anscheinend „eingebürgerten“ und „integrierten“ jungen Muslimen durchgeführt wurden. Dabei wird nicht beachtet, dass in vielen islamischen Ländern seit langem eine Trennung zwischen Staat und faith besteht. Trotz der inzwischen 40jährigen Migration von Muslimen ist das Wissen über den Islam in der deutschen Öffentlichkeit gering geblieben. Es wird größtenteils die those vertreten, Muslime wollten sich nicht integrieren, um ihre „kulturelle Identität“ nicht zu verlieren, oder sie könnten sich nicht integrieren, da der Islam dies nicht zulasse. Stehen sich hier islamische faith und Rechtsstaat, culture und Moderne, homogene und pluralistische Gesellschaft gegenüber? Sind Muslime nicht gewollt, ist es ihnen nicht erlaubt oder liegt es an der autochthonen Bevölkerung? Ich beziehe mich in meiner Seminararbeit auf in Deutschland lebende Türken, muslimischen Glaubens, da diese den größten Anteil der in der BRD lebenden Muslime ausmachen.
