The Institutionalization of Islam in Britain post 9-11
Institutionalization can be described as a deliberate process in which an individual who enters an institution is programmed so that he or she acts and accepts to conform to the different controls. This is meant to enable that particular institution to manage a large number of people who are within its jurisdiction. In reference to human communities, institutionalization can be used to refer to the systematic process through which a state programs communities to bring them under their control. This has been the case of Muslims in UK and other European countries. With the continued fear of terrorism, it has become necessary for European and UK government to institute measures to neutralize the possible negative effects on the Muslim communities in these countries. However it is still not clear whether institutionalization in UK has been successful or not but in general the UK government has been in position to control incidence of extremism among Muslims.
