40 Years of Islamic Religious Education in Austria


The international symposium 40 Years of Islamic Religious Education in Austria will take place on May 20-21, 2022. It is organised by the Department of Islamic Religious Education in cooperation with the Centre for Islamic Theology at the University of Münster.

Considering the key function of Islamic religious education for the integration of people of the Muslim faith into Austrian society, the question arises after 40 years of experience with Islamic religious education to what extent it has actually achieved its educational goals in public schools in Austria.    

The history of Islamic religious education, the resulting experiences and desiderata are the topics that the planned symposium would like to address, at the end of which, in addition to taking stock of 40 years of Islamic religious education, proposals for shaping its future should also be available. Further information (in German) can be found on the website of the symposium.  

The symposium will be held in German.
