This archive is part of the Digital Islam Across Europe project’s collection. One of the DigitIslam project outputs focuses on website data and collection analysis. The objective is to identify, catalogue and analyse Muslim organisations’ and actors’ websites (Online Islamic Environments or OIEs) from these different countries.1

These individuals are influential in different sectors going from religious authority figures (Sunni, Shia, Sufi, or Ahmadiyya Muslims) to activists (defending political, feminist, minority and other causes) passing by famous converts, invested researchers, journalists, writers, artists, counsellors, and bloggers. The websites listed here form part of a wider online space, incorporating social media (beyond the scope of our archive). They act as essential hubs for online activities and sustained records of digital discourse, which forms part of an influential subtext of opinion, discourse and rhetoric across Muslim diversity.

This archive consists of an initial capture. We will be updating this list in due course. We believe this data can become a useful tool for researchers and the general public who have an interest in digital Islam across Europe as well as those who are mostly focused on the study of Islam or comparative religion within the British or Western context. Moreover, the analysis of these sites will be part of a wider project output through presentations and publications.
