The World's Muslims: Africa

The Pew Research Center published on 30 April 2013 a book length study titled "The World's Muslims: Religion, Politics, and Society."  The report examines the social and political views of Muslims around the world.  It is based on public opinion surveys between 2008 and 2012 in 39 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe.  African countries included in the survey are Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, DRC, Cameroon, Chad, Nigeria, Niger, Mali, Ghana, Liberia, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal.

The study looks at sharia, religion and politics (democracy, religious freedom, Islamic political parties, extremism and suicide bombing), morality, women in society (veiling, divorce, inheritance, and women's rights), relations among Muslims, interfaith relations and religion, science and popular culture.
