Part of the Wiener Beiträge zur Islamforschung book series (WSI)

Abstract

The events in Ukraine which took place at the cusp of 2013 and 2014, and which continue up to the present (2015), have caused a radical rethinking of a number of stereotypes, as well as the breakdown of previous social relations together with the formation of new ones. This transformation has influenced the Muslim community of Ukraine as well. In the public space of Ukraine, an intensive transformation of Muslim themes is taking place, and these transformations have impacted all Ukrainian Muslims.
