Far From Jihad: Combatants of Muslim Origin in European Armies in the 20th Century

Cité nationale pour l'histoire de l'immigration  -  293, avenue Daumesnil  -  75012 Paris
Hundreds of thousands of Muslim combatants – the vast majority of them being non-Europeans – fought in the ranks of various European armies in the 20th century. How Islam was perceived by the military authorities supervising these combatants? What role did Islam played for the troops themselves? This conference aims at reintroducing the question of religious belonging and practice into the study of Muslim combatants in European armies by focusing on the combatants’ viewpoint as much as possible, alongside the viewpoint of the administrations and military hierarchy.
