Nathalie Plinsinga - Laïcité and the apparent rise of radical Islam in France

An exploration of the relationship between laïcité and radical Islam in contemporary France


In this thesis, I assume that there is a connection between laïcité and radical Islam in France. The main reason for this assumption is that France does its utmost to keep religion private and out of the public sphere, and yet has more citizens who are joining militant Islamic movements than any other European country. This suggests at least that laïcité is not always succeeding in privatizing religion and possibly that laïcité may actually contribute to this phenomenon. I will lay out different academic theories to justify my arguments. After this, I will do a critical discourse analysis. In the end I will give the conclusion of my research.
