Ferrara on Muslim Schools in France & Contentious Contracts: The Conversation

Marketing Communication assistant professor and sociocultural anthropologist Carol Ferrara co-writes for the academic news site The Conversation about the implications of the recent elimination of the state contract for the Averroes school in France, the largest Muslim school under agreement.

Ferrara and co-authors Françoise Lorcerie and Vincent Geisser indicate that their research shows France exerts uneven control over the type of schools under contract, comparing Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim schools.

The authors further examine the topic in “France’s biggest Muslim school went from accolades to defunding – showing a key paradox in how the country treats Islam.”
