This chapter addresses the key arguments, debates and themes that run throughout the book. It asserts that Muslim immigrants in Newcastle and Bremen have historically performed better in the employment, housing and education sectors than is often assumed to have been the case in Britain and Germany more widely. It offers some explanations for why this this might be the case, including the relatively small sizes of both cities’ communities and the distinct regional identity that it has long been argued is present in both cities. Furthermore, the chapter questions both the long-term ramifications of Britain and Germany’s post-war immigration frameworks and challenges the notion that Islam has played an overwhelming role in the integration process.
