Muslims in Bulgaria: Dynamics of Attitudes. Collected Papers. In Bulgarian


     Proceedings of a conference "Muslims in Bulgaria: Dynamics and Attitudes" held in May 2017 at New Bulgarian University. The book analyzes the Bulgarian projections in the dynamics of attitudes in the last five years (20112016), burdened on a global scale with many "Muslim" problems. The Bulgarian situation could be interpreted as a model for peaceful and tolerant cohabitation between Christians and Muslims.

     Main results of project “Attitudes of Muslims in Bulgaria  2016”:

• Persistent low social status

• Coexistence of modernity and tradition with certain reversion to the patriarchal model of family relations

• Clearly expressed religious identity with a trend towards stricter adherence to the rules

• Prevalence of religiosity among the poorest in the ghettoes, reaching 100%. Increasing religiosity among the youngest

• In spite of the practice of Islam, clearly expressed priority of the common human (non-religious) criteria of good and evil

• Preserved good interpersonal relations with the Christians, accompanied by increasing differentiation

• Clearly expressed attitudes in favour of the secular state organization, but also a certain alienation from politics and the state institutions

• High level of disapproval of terrorist organizations and increased level of denouncing of terrorism compared with 2011

• In 2016 similar to 2011 no radical attitudes were discovered among the Muslims in Bulgaria

• The danger of individuals falling under the influence of Islamism, including its extreme forms cannot be eliminated, but it is not supported by the large majority of this community
