Overview

This book intends to make known, through a complex network of interviews and fields of study, the mutual preoccupation between people with separate religious creeds in the West. In 2005, the Alliance of Civilizations was formed, bursting with hope, under the sponsorship of the United Nations. Its objectives? To maintain and fortify the ties between the West and the Arab world with the end goal of cooperating and combating international terrorism, correct economic inequalities, and to reinforce intercultural dialogue. A decade later, we are able to ask ourselves if these goals, as well as even more ambitious ones, have been seen reflected in the population. The results of the research will allow the readers, on the shoulders of the experts united in this volume (all of them with recognized experience in the field of immigration and international relations), to verify and question the efficacy of the politics of integration as enacted in several member countries of the European Union that have signification pockets of Muslim populations. Mirada del otro puts on the table both the problems with and possible solutions for immigration, but most importantly offers to the reader the opportunity to form their own critical opinions. This is a book in which no opinion is left out, where we are all both observers and the observed, where every view is taken into account.  Este libro pretende dar a conocer, a través de una compleja red de entrevistas y estudios de campo, las percepciones mutuas entre personas con distinto credo religioso en Occidente. En 2005 nació, henchida de esperanzas, la Alianza de Civilizaciones bajo los auspicios de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU). ¿Sus objetivos? Mantener y fortificar los nexos entre Occidente y el mundo árabe con el fin de cooperar y combatir el terrorismo internacional, corregir las desigualdades económicas y reforzar el diálogo intercultural. Una década más tarde podemos preguntarnos si estas metas, así como otras aún más ambiciosas, se han visto reflejadas en la población. Los resultados de la investigación permitirán a los lectores, a hombros de los expertos reunidos en el presente volumen (todos ellos de reconocida experiencia en el ámbito de la inmigración y las relaciones internacionales) verificar y cuestionar la eficacia de las políticas de integración efectuadas en los distintos países miembros de la Unión Europea con significativas bolsas de población musulmana. La mirada del otro pone encima de la mesa problemas y posibles soluciones sobre el insoslayable fenómeno de la inmigración, pero ante todo ofrece al lector un precioso material con el que formar un criterio de opinión propio, crítico y riguroso. Un libro en el que ninguna posición queda excluida, donde todos somos, al mismo tiempo, observadores y observados. Donde, a fin de cuentas, ninguna mirada es despreciada y todas son tenidas en cuenta.
