Islamic identity formation among young Muslims: the case of Denmark, Sweden and the United States

This paper aims to explore aspects of transnational identity formation among young Muslims in three Western countries, Denmark, Sweden and the United States. The thesis is that, on the one hand, such transnational identity formations are indeed taking place, and, on the other, they are continuously effected by aspects of the local and the contextual, and in particular by the conditions and legislation of the host nation-state.
