Une synthèse actualisée d’un rapport de janvier 2006 'Pour une formation des imams en Belgique. Points de référence en Belgique et en Europe' réalisée à la demande de la Fondation Roi Baudouin. Les imams ont un pouvoir d’influence important au sein des communautés musulmanes. Régulièrement, des voix s’élèvent pour demander que les imams exerçant en Europe puissent également y être formés. Ce rapport étudie l’état de la réflexion en la matière dans sept pays de l’Union européenne, à savoir : la Belgique, la France, l’Allemagne, les Pays-Bas, le Royaume-Uni, la Suède et l’Autriche. Il se penche aussi sur les types de relations qui existent entre l’état et l’église; en effet, ces relations, construites au fil de l’histoire, varient fortement d’un pays à l’autre. La question du financement des cultes y est également abordée. [less ▲]

This King Baudouin Foundation commissioned publication is the updated and completed version of a previous publication issued in January 2006 on the subject of imam training in Belgium and Europe. This time document offers a comprehensive, updated overview of Islam and imam status in seven EU countries, namely Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, England, Sweden and Austria, set in the broader context of the state-church relation and the modalities of funding in each of the target country. Whereas imams are believed to wield considerable influence within their community, the question of official certification of their training is raised less often. Whether the state should stay away from this issue or not, or whether there is a need for imams practicing in Europe to be trained in Europe, are important issues which deserve closer attention.

This paper compares the ways of recognition and public support to humanist/atheist organisations in 6 European countries. They are also compared with dispositions regarding religions - and more particularly islam - in Belgium, The Netherlands, Britain, France, Germany and Italy. These countries have been chosen because of the difference of regimes in supporting religions and philosophical communities. [less ▲]

Within the framework of considérations regarding the training of imams in Belgium, the King Baudouin Foundation sought to produce a report portraying the situation concerning organised secularism and religions in the country. The main aim of such a report was to outline the training of both ministers of recognised religions and secular delegates. In a second phase, a similar approach was taken to describe the situation in a few other European countries. Belgium has no legal provisions or regulations that are recognised as such by the state and impose minimum requirements on the training of religious ministers or secular delegates. Consequently, it is the internal rules laid down by the various religions themselves that define such training requirements. However, some training of this type is organised as part of recognised, subsidised higher education and therefore leads to the conferral of a legally recognised title. Similar situations apply in some other countries. The present study discusses the situation in France, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Germany and Sweden. In all these countries, it is entirely up to the respective religions themselves to stipulate their internal training requirements. However, as in Belgium, such mandatory training may be organised within the framework of higher education that is financed and/or organised by the state and, if need be, incorporated in a bachelor's or master's degree. One significant observation is that in the countries in question combinations of academic and religious requirements apply in various instances, indeed for a relatively large number of religions (at least in the Netherlands and Great Britain). The experience gained in France, the Netherlands and Great Britain also highlights how divided Muslim communities are with respect to the training requirements applying to imams. The establishment of internal standards applying solely within Islam would appear to constitute a first, essential step towards the creation of suitable training that applies to adherents of all the various 'trends' within this particular religious community. In this connection, the Executive of Belgian Muslims could play a crucial role. Furthermore, in Belgium the salaries of religious ministers and secular delegates are paid by the federal government, in line with its recognition of the religions in question, based on criteria that include their 'service to society'. The question arising next concerns the academic qualification to be awarded at the end of such training. No doubt it would make sense to impose at least the requirement equivalent to that expected by the ministers of other religions. Experience gained abroad also underscores the value of calling upon the expertise and skills already on offer at higher education institutions, teaching universities and research establishments when putting together a training course based on a progressive growth model, developing ideas for the short, medium and long term. If training for imams is offered as an option in higher or university education, as a community-related subject, Belgium's various Communities will have to be invited, as appropriate, to join in the associated thought process. Similarly, the constitutionality of making the payment of a religious minister's salary dependent on their having undergone a specific training course will need to be addressed. In this connection, we refer you to the work being done by the committee recently set up by Minister Onkelinx, which is due to publish a report some time in 2006. Finally, the social role played by imams should not be ignored. In this respect, any training project will also have to take on board considerations such as how to meet short-term needs (especially with regard to languages and knowledge of the society in question, particularly compared with serving imams) and subsequent developments (e.g. taking account of young Muslims born in the respective country, most of whom will have the corresponding nationality).
