The monograph is devoted to the analysis of the situation of Muslim immigrants in some European countries. The author pays particular attention to the difficulties of adaptation of immigrants and their desire to rely on their religious and ethnic values. As a result, it leads to the organization of numerous ethno-confessional groups. European countries are undergoing the demographic decline; therefore they are interested in population growth due to immigrants. However, the second and third generation of immigrants demonstrates a commitment to culture and religion of the countries of origin. The author sees the reason for the current situation in the mismatch of ethnic characteristics and values of the people belonging to collectivist culture (immigrants) with the mentality of the receiving society, where people got accustomed to individualistic stereotypes.
