Working Paper

Reformist Islam

by Andreas Jacobs

Protagonists, Methods, and Themes of Progressive Thinking in Contemporary Islam

The present working paper identifies the protagonists, methods, and themes of Reformist Islam, and discusses its potential as well as its limits. It argues that Reformist Islamic thought is neither a cure-all for integration problems nor a silver bullet against Islamist terror.
