Islam and Europe – Islamisation or Peaceful Co-existence?Hardly a trace is left of shared European values; talk of a crumbling Europe is spreading. Can we say that conservative Islam constitutes a “challenge” to Europe, and if so, in which areas and with which effects? Are fears of infiltration by Islam of European democracies justified? Do the parallel societies of “family clans” in European cities herald the impending frag- mentation of European polity? Are there prospects for the emergence of some form of “Euro-Islam” or is liberal Islam a vani- shingly small factor beside the authoritari- an Islamist currents? These topics will be brought up for discussion through lectures, and participants will be able to acquire deeper insights and assess possible future developments.

Terrorism – A Threat to Freedom and Security
The threat from terrorist violence is one of the biggest challenges to security policy since the end of WW2, and has grown
into an international problem since the turn of the century. Operating on a world scale, Islamist terrorism has dominated discussions of security policy since 9/11. National revolutionary terrorist acts like the ones committed by the NSU (Germany) or by the Norwegian Anders Breivik are further terrorist threats to liberal pluralist societies. The seminar looks at the concept of terrorism, the goals of terrorists, and the processes that can lead to radicalisation. The types of terrorism that currently represent threats to freedom and security are examined based on examples from global terror net- works. Possibilities forcombating terrorism will be discussed. The participants will debate the balance of freedom and security in times of terrorist threat.
