I am hiring two PhD researchers (three years, 65%) for my new project “Religion, religiosity, and the social-emotional integration of Muslim youth”. The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and directed at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES).
The project examines the mechanisms that drive the social-emotional integration of Muslim youth. For this purpose, (longitudinal) secondary data analyses (e.g., CILS4EU, FIS, NEPS), choice experiments, and group discussions will be conducted. The main aim is to better understand to what extent religion and religiosity matter for friendship choices and the development of national identification of young Muslims. It will also be examined whether non-Muslim youth exclude their Muslim peers, and, if so, what consequences this has for their social-emotional integration.
