Journal of Muslim Minority
only journal in the world committed to scholarly and systematic study of
Muslim minority communities living in non-Muslim societies. Our focus is on studying the social,
economic, political and demographic situation of these communities, and our
interest extends to include the situation of non-Muslim communities living
in Muslim societies, with the objective of widening our understanding of
the minority experience.
Starting from Volume 25, 2005, JMMA is published three
times a year in April, August and December.
It welcomes submissions of previously unpublished research articles
and book reviews from all interested scholars and students of minority
affairs. To further the intellectual
discourse, JMMA invites comments on articles in preceding
issues as well as information, announcements and reports on current events
relevant to the minority experience, for which space is provided under the

(paper) version exactly matches the version sent by e-mail. Please print out the hard copy from the
