From Volume 7 onwards, new format with a more current and topical focus on a country level.
The Yearbook of Muslims in Europe is an essential resource for analysis of Europe's dynamic Muslim populations. Featuring up-to-date research from forty-three European countries, this comprehensive reference work summarizes significant activities, trends, and developments.
Each new volume reports on the most current information available from surveyed countries, offering an annual overview of statistical and demographic data, topical issues of public debate, shifting transnational networks, change to domestic and legal policies, and major activities in Muslim organisations and institutions. Supplementary data is gathered from a variety of sources and evaluated according to its reliability.
In addition to offering a relevant framework for original research, the Yearbook of Muslims in Europe provides an invaluable source of reference for government and NGO officials, journalists, policy-makers, and related research institutions.

“In the course of these ten years [since volume 1], the Yearbook has managed to depict meticulously the European Muslim communities’ situation, the European states and societies’ reaction towards Muslims and the integration course of Muslims in Europe.[…]
The Yearbook also offers, by way of an introduction, a really interesting and innovative article (pages 1-20) about the way Muslim communities in post-Soviet era Eastern Europe manage their affairs (Egdünas Račius’ Governance of Islam in Europe: An Eastern European Perspective) and relate to the state.”
