The Muslim Brotherhood in Europe: Origins and Development

  • 11 December 2019

For more than sixty-five years, Europe has provided the Muslim Brotherhood with a stable and safe base for operations in the Arab World. Far from being an unwanted guest, the Muslim Brotherhood was welcomed by Western intelligence agencies in Europe during the Cold War. Seen as a defense against the Soviet Union, the Muslim Brotherhood’s presence in Europe instead contributed to the radicalization of European Muslims, while also allowing it to operate in the Middle East from its safe haven. Based on archival research in Germany, the UK and the US, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ian Johnson charts how the Muslim Brotherhood arrived in Europe and its consequences for the region.
