Abstract | Full Text

The paper considers the spatial development of Islam in the EU countries since 1950 by analyzing the dynamics of the Islamic center of gravity in Europe. The center of gravity is found using the Geographic Midpoint Calculator. The main factors leading to the spatial transformation of Islam in the EU are determined. Particular attention is paid to establishing the role of the migration component in changing the position of the Islamic center of gravity, including under conditions of the European migrant crisis. Given the scale of the existing migration flows of Muslims in the EU, the trajectory of the Islamic center of gravity until 2050 is established.
