Facts & Findings

What is the Muslim Brotherhood in the West?

by Lorenzo Vidino

Towards a commonly accepted framework

Authorities throughout Europe are increasingly concerned about activities of the Muslim Brotherhood. But what is the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe and how can it be analyzed?
An analytical approach of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe should differentiate between a core, several spawns, and organisations influenced by the Brotherhood. The majority of these organisations are independent junior members of a global family rather than branches of Middle Eastern mother organizations. They should acknowledge these ties to the global Brotherhood network in order to dispel accusations of duplicity and opaqueness.
