framework of the network entitled Faiths and Social cohesion,
aims to study the way in which the local governmentsmanage religious diversity and in particular their links withthe Muslim presence and its mosques. The method adopted,in agreement with the coordination of the network supportedby the European Union, was to have only one casestudy, i.e. a municipality with a significant Muslim populationand the presence of one or several mosques, to studytransactions of various types between religious communitiesand local institutions, as well as to experiment with a role offacilitation in the framework of these relations.
