State, church and religious minorities in Greece, Italy and Sweden

"In public discourse, immigrants are often perceived and depicted as a threat. The fact that they belong to a different religion, mainly Islam, is said to have a big influence on their integration process. In order to isolate the impact of religion on the integration process, I examine the extreme case of countries in which almost the whole population belongs to a single religion and thus, the majority religion is deeply connected with national identity. Is religion the factor which determines how minorities integrate? Or do other factors play a part?"
