In most European countries, active organisations exist that trace their historical and ideological roots to the Muslim Brotherhood and other participationist, non-violent Islamist movements, although these organisations act, for the most part, independently of those movements. Thanks to their activism, ample resources and political skills, and despite their small numbers, these organisations have often achieved a disproportionate influence, both within the Muslim community and in their interactions with governments and media. They are aided in this by the poor organisation of competing Islamic trends. The first part of this report seeks to provide a general understanding of the history, evolution, methods and aims of these networks, which the report terms New European Brothers (NEBs). The second part of the report analyses the influence of the NEBs on voting patterns within European Muslim communities and outlines possible scenarios of a hypothetical engagement of NEB networks by European centre-right parties.
