Abstract [en]

The purpose of this phenomenologically inspired study is to ascertain which successful meaning making methods have been implemented by Dawoodi Bohra congregations established in Western societies. The aim is to find out how this group function without confrontation to achieve their goal of worshiping in their own purpose built mosques. The central research question is which successful meaning making methods have been implemented by Dawoodi Bohra congregations established in Western societies. A sub-question is what specific roll education has played in this process?

For my theoretical foundation I have used Park’s theory of meaning making and Giorgi's phenomenological analysis approach. My research has been based on discourse analysis and identifying patterns of recurring key elements in various research papers covering the subject of integration and acculturation of members of Muslim congregations born in western societies. My research material consist of previous research from Mandviwala concerning adolescent girls, Eade’s, creating homes in London, and Ahmed’s Manchester Muslims. My intension is to reinterpret their research material using Giorgi’s phenomenological analysis. Dawoodi Bohras’ generally achieve their goals even when reestablished and living in western cultures. Their meaning making philosophy usually works to their advantage as their solution to problems are not confrontational or antisocial. They are generally low keyed discrete solutions that do not evoke hostility in their new western societies.
