Muslim anti-Semitism in Austrian Mosque Communities?

This interdisciplinary anti-Semitism project, funded by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), deals with the relationship between Islam and Judaism and between Muslims and Jews, as well as with the denotation of anti-Semitism. For this purpose, young Muslims between the ages of 18 and 30 who attend mosques and imams of various mosque communities in Austria will first be interviewed within the framework of qualitative social research. A follow-up application is then planned to conduct interviews with young Jews as well as rabbis and Jewish scholars in Austria on Jewish-Islamic relations. The findings of this study are not only relevant for experts, politicians and legislators, but also have social significance, as they encourage critical reflection on the mutual relationship and its academic as well as media reproduction.
