The main aim of this panel is to contribute to the study of Islam in terms of identity and citizenship – politics, discourses and performativity- in Europe. In European societies, migrant communities from Muslim majority countries have come to be perceived as “Muslim” subjects, carriers of primitive values, under suspicion of radicalization. Authors as O. Roy affirm that in the transnational Islam, the religion is one element that has been able to produce a Muslim Diaspora independently of the national origins of its members. In this process, concept of resistance, as pointed out by Scott (2003), allows us to analyze the responses of the population in diaspora in a context of uncertainty.Some areas of interest are: religion in cities, dynamics of construction of an authority / corpus of religious formation, religiosity in the so-called second generations and analysis of discourses on identity produced.
