Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this seminar, religion is presented in the context of the phenomenon of migration: The migration of Alevis to European countries, which has been increasing for decades, is not due to their own preferences, but to political, economic or religious constraints.
The migration of Alevis in Europe, which began in the 1960s, was influenced not only by the political, economic and socio-cultural processes in their own countries, but also in the countries where they settled. The growth of Alevi organizations, especially after the 1990s, led to new definitions and discussions about their identity, rituals and belonging. This seminar will present the rights, conditions and achievements of Alevis living in different European countries.
