Beyond Accommodation

Everyday Narratives of Muslim Canadians

Problems – of integration, failed political participation, and requests of all kinds – seem to dominate the research on minority Muslims in Western nations. Beyond Accommodation offers a different perspective, showing how Muslim Canadians successfully navigate and negotiate their religiosity. The authors critique the model of reasonable accommodation, suggesting that it disempowers religious minorities by implicitly privileging Christianity and by placing the onus on them to make formal requests for accommodation. Through interviews, Muslim Canadians show that informal negotiation takes place all the time; scholars, however, have not been paying attention to it. This book proposes an alternative picture of how religious difference is woven into the fabric of Canadian society.
