Determinants of Integration
Muslim conceptualisation of integration has until now been noticeably absent from the debate of immigrant integration. This chapter specifically explains research findings of what Australian Muslim participants perceived to be determinants of integration. It discusses Australian Muslim conceptions of integration in line with other competing interpretations of the concept. It acknowledges divergent viewpoints of the scholarly debates about immigrant integration taking place in Australia and parts of Western Europe.
