Student thesis: Master thesis (including HD thesis)

  • Dilara Moldenhauer
The aim of the following thesis is to analyze the causes of Islamophobia in France by using the integrated threat theory with the purpose of finding out what makes people have a negative attitude towards Islam/ Muslims and if this causes lead to a more restricted/ woebegone life for Muslims in France or not.
The usage of the integrated threat theory will help with analysing the causes of Islamophobia and giving an argumentation based on the analysis. The analysis focused on connecting the research problem with the theory. Hypotheses were then formulated based on this theory in an attempt to explain the research statement. The validity of the hypotheses in this context was then investigated, by delving deeper into an explanation of the proposed statements along with criticism. Following this, I determine whether the hypothesis has a negative or a positive outcome, that ultimately leads to a conclusion.
