National Interests in Transnational Muslim Fields

  • Benjamin Bruce
Chapter
Part of the The Sciences Po Series in International Relations and Political Economy book series (SPIRP)

Abstract

Over the last 20 years, Turkey and Morocco have promoted a series of innovative transnational solutions to the challenge of governing Islam abroad. The securitization of Islam in Western Europe post-9/11 has been instrumental in both home states’ bid to delegitimize non-state religious actors and ensure the continuity of interstate cooperation concerning religious affairs. Moreover, Turkey and Morocco have pursued initiatives aimed at establishing a new class of home state-linked religious authorities in Western European Muslim fields. Nevertheless, the combination of nationalist Islamic traditions and cultural capital in both countries’ religious diaspora policies as well as the exportation of home state conflicts to diaspora communities raises the potential for heightened interstate tensions and continued ethno-national cleavages in the French and German Muslim fields.
