The Imams of Catalonia

The result of the research done by the anthropologist Jordi Moreras, about the imams of Catalonia reveals that contrarily to what society believes they are not so influent among the Muslim community.

One of the arguments Moreras presents is their poor labour conditions as their religious function is not officially recognised and they have no working contract. Another argument is the unfitted academic preparation to the current context in which they have to work at, as their preparation is designed in accordance with their native countries and not in accordance with western countries.
