about this bookdeutsch english This study primarily analyzes the policy towards Muslims in Slovakia since the establishment of the Slovak Republic in 1993. The focal point of the research is the parliamentary debates and laws that have a direct impact on the Muslim population in Slovakia, as well as expert interviews and analysis of public discourse and public opinion. The period of the research covers the time after the establishment of the Slovak Republic with a clarification of the situation before 1993. Slovakia only recognizes national minorities, and even though the state has ratified a number of international treaties dealing with minorities, there are double standards when it comes to churches and religious communities - through the registration system, which was tightened in 2007 and the Vatican treaties, which strengthen the power of the Catholic Church in Slovakia. At the same time the censuses are limited only to recognized national minorities and registered religious communities, which means that the State does not have enough information about other minorities, and thus does not have the possibility to adopt laws and rights according to current needs. What are the views of politicians on Islam and Muslims in Slovakia? What does the public say about simplifying life for Muslims? And how do the representatives of Muslims and the Ministry of Culture, which is responsible for the registration of churches and religious communities, view the situation of Muslims in Slovakia? The views differ on these issues and the critics are of the opinion that the policy towards Muslims in Slovakia and integration and migration policy in general increasingly turn to nationalism.
