Changing Structures of Islamic Authority and Consequences for Social Change: A Transnational Review

Changing Structures of Islamic Authority and Consequences for Social Change: A Transnational Review (CSIA) is a five year research project funded by the European Research Council (ERC). It brings together Islamic textual scholars, ethnographers and survey specialists to map the competing theological positions of today’s leading Islamic authorities, to examine their real-life consequences, and to explore why young Muslims follow one authority over another.
