Islamic activism in a multicultural context : ideological continuity or change?
Research on the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and Islamic activism has grown in scope in recent years. Globalization has led MB-associated activists to move to various parts of the world where they have built up locally influ-enced activities. Given that MB is a movement with ambitions to change how individuals, communities and states see themselves and how society should be run, there is an interest in finding out more about what the activities of MB-associated organizations mean to Sweden. The contents of this report should be seen as a part of a broader research effort to contribute knowledge about how Islamic activism is expressed in Sweden and other European countries. Since it involves a complex topic, the contents should be viewed as an area of research under development.
