CALL FOR PAPERS
YEARBOOK OF MUSLIMS IN EUROPE
I would like to introduce you to a new important publishing, a Yearbook of Muslims in Europe published by the well-known Dutch academic publisher Brill in Leiden.
Each annual volume provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Europe. Covering 46 countries of Western, Central and Eastern Europe, the Yearbook consists of three sections
The first section presents a country-by-country survey of essential data with basic statistics with evaluations of their reliability, surveys of legal status and arrangements, organizations, etc. providing an annually up-dated reference resource.
The second section contains analysis and research articles on issues and themes of current relevance written by experts in the field.
The final section provides reviews of recently published books of significance. The Yearbook is already an important source of reference for government and NGO officials, journalists, and policy makers as well as researchers. The first volume, covering 2008, was published in November 2009, and the second volume in November 2010. The third volume is being published in November 2011:
