A Discussion of Claire L. Adida, David D. Laitin, and Marie-Anne Valfort’s Why Muslim Integration Fails in Christian-Heritage Societies

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  21 August 2018

Abstract

The title of the book needs no explanation: Why Muslim Integration Fails in Christian-Heritage Societies. It marks an issue of widespread and obvious current relevance, especially in Europe and in the United States in the age of Donald Trump. It registers a claim that is surely controversial and that also perhaps blends empirical and normative judgments. The book is thus a perfect candidate for a Perspectives symposium because it opens itself to so many different perspectives.

1 Pew 2011: In response to the question: “Do men or women make better political leaders or is there no difference?” 68% of the U.S. Muslims said in 2011 that there is no difference, while the general U.S. public was at 72%. The relevant comparison, though, is with Muslim attitudes in Muslim-majority countries, where in 2007, majorities in the majority of Muslim countries indicated that men were better political leaders.

2 The Muslim community in France differs from the Muslim American community on a variety of socioeconomic criteria. The Muslim American community tends to be better educated and wealthier. However, what this distinction shows is that socioeconomic status matters for “integration.”
