Chapter 5 is designed to profile evidence of patterns of retreatism from across the six countries. The chapter begins with a short elaboration of retreatism and its general characteristics. The chapter then considers in turn: France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada, each discussed in the context of evidence of retreatist strategies among both Muslim minority and majority populations. The chapter argues that while retreatism can be detected among Muslim minority populations, the object against which the individual is retreating can either be the larger political society or it might be the Muslim community itself. While the politics of retreatism is associated with diasporic generations, it is not unknown among postdiasporic cohorts.

Keywords:   retreatism, majority, minority, postdiaspora Muslims, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Canada
