Is there a clash of civilizations between Europe and the Muslim World and what role does religion play in the secular European Union?


Essay, 2009

3 Pages, Grade: 1,2


Abstract or Introduction

It cannot be denied that there are several obvious signs for a clash of civilizations between Europe and Islam (or stated more exactly: conflicts arising in certain areas), letting authors like former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt rashly conclude that “the west and the Muslim world seem far removed from a stable and peaceful co-existence” (Schmidt 2004). But just as Huntington calls for a deeper understanding of religions outside the West and for their (better) integration into (Western) societies (Huntington 1993. p. 49), we have to work a lot yet on removing ignorance to create a stable future for Europe.
