In an interview in the Leipzig University magazine, Hatem Elliesie talks about his research into Muslim communities in Germany and public debates about the phenomenon of so-called “parallel societies”. He looks at the conflict-regulation mechanisms within these immigrant communities and how practices of extrajudicial community justice – often referred to as “parallel justice” – and the challenges this presents for the norms of society as a whole. This contribution was extremely well received on the twitter account of the University of Leipzig.
