Recognizing the other: Jewish–Muslim relations in the global food industry

Press/Media: Research

Description

John Lever writes on Jewish-Muslim relations in the global food industry.  In line with conflict in the Middle East, Jewish-Muslim relations are often represented in the media and public discourse in confrontational terms. Whilst Jewish-Muslim relations reflect and are in turn shaped by public attitudes towards ‘minority communities’, when hidden from view within the workings of the global kosher and halal food industry, for example, Jewish-Muslim relations can be more harmonious than is often assumed.

    DescriptionIn line with conflict in the Middle East, Jewish-Muslim relations are often represented in the media and public discourse in confrontational terms. In a recent blog piece, Yulia Egorova suggests similarly that Jewish-Muslim relations reflect and are in turn shaped by public attitudes towards ‘minority communities’. Conversely, my research with Johan Fischer has found that when hidden from view within the workings of the global kosher and halal food industry, for example, Jewish-Muslim relations can be more harmonious than is often assumed.
