Muslim Migrants in Bratislava. This paper draws from the ethnographic research of Muslim migrants in Bratislava, Slovakia, which I conducted in the spring and summer of 2009. I wish to explain internal dynamics of what is often called the “Muslim community” in Slovakia and pay notice to the most important functions of a place these migrants call “the mosque”. I will question these terms and show why they are disputable. Even though Islam and migration are heavily debated issues in Europe, there has been very little research on them in Slovakia. My paper wishes to give a better perspective on these themes by approaching them from the “inside”; from the particular life stories of men and women I met on the site during my fieldwork.
