This course aims at introducing students to qualitative methods in the social sciences. It highlights the contributions of qualitative research to the study of the State, public policy and institutions, while also exploring its limitations. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with a range of qualitative methods, including interviews, ethnography, archival research, focus groups, text analysis and the use of leaked documents. They will read key authors who use qualitative methods to examine the crafting of public policies, the history of institutions or the workings of international organizations. They will collectively engage with the strengths and challenges of such methods. They will conduct their own qualitative research on one public policy or one institution of their choice and will have the opportunity to reflect on the practical obstacles and opportunities that these methods raise on the field.

Making up approximately 5% of the total European population, Muslims are a well-established minority in Europe. This course introduces students to the social, political and historical dynamics that shape the daily lives of European Muslims in the contemporary period. It starts by introducing students to social science studies of religion and by questioning the category of “Islam” itself. It then situates Islam and Muslims within the larger European polity, by comparing how church-State relations and colonial history have affected the position of Islam in different countries. It also unpacks several public controversies surrounding Islam within the European public sphere and shows how Muslim communities in Europe have been affected by Islamophobia and by radicalization and counter-radicalization discourses and policies over the past decades. Finally, the course explores lived Islam among European Muslims, with several sessions devoted to ethnographic reading about Muslim life in Western Europe as it is shaped by secularism, transnational movements, youth culture and conversions. This course exposes students to a variety of perspectives across the social sciences (political science, anthropology, sociology). It also takes a comparative stance by covering a plurality of national contexts (including France, the UK, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Scandinavian countries). By the end of this class, students will be familiar with the various public and academic debates surrounding European Muslims and will be able to mobilize tools from the social sciences to discuss religion, secularism, citizenship and discrimination in the European context.
