Muslim Frames and Schemas of Integration
What sort of integration frames and schemas immigrants employ in their understanding of integration is important. This may perhaps shed a light on why they conceptualise the concept of integration in a particular way. This chapter pushes the empirical examination of integration deeper by using cognitive psychology theory of schemata. The chapter analyses the cognitive schematic constructs that individual Muslim participants employed to define integration. It reveals how particular notions and ideal discourses of citizenship inform Muslims’ schemas and frames of integration.
