Lived Religiosity and Citizenship in Contemporary Switzerland: The Case Study of a Young Swiss Bosnian Muslim Woman
This research intends to explore how a young Swiss Bosnian woman of Muslim faith constructs, sustains and navigates multi-layered identities in the context of ‘post-migratory’ Switzerland. Furthermore, it will look at how she thinks, feels and acts in relation to her lived religiosity and citizenship, which are developed in both Swiss and transnational social environments and forged by their culture. In that respect, a narrative analysis is adopted. Eventually, the case study of Sanja will exemplify how a young Swiss Muslim woman takes root in a Western European secular society (contemporary Switzerland), produces and lives new and creative religiosity and citizenship belongings, based mainly on individual and effective dimensions.
