Europe and Islam: Coexistence or Integration?

Europe and Islam: Coexistence or Integration?

This video was recorded at President of the Republic of Slovenia. President Türk defined Islam as a global religion within which different responses have evolved for adaptation to the contemporary world and democracy. In this context Islam, among other things, gave rise to extremism and violence, but he warned at the same time that when dealing with this issue one should avoid any sort of demonisation of Islam or exaggerated political correctness, but rather initiate a frank and open discussion of the phenomenon. Dr Türk pointed out that Europe lacks experience regarding mass migrations and, consequently, a mindful and reasonable policy approach to issues in this area. Moreover, specific experience from different countries and societies will have to be taken into account in this regard.
