rheaThe accommodation of Muslim religious practices is an increasingly  salient political issue across Western Europe. Parallel to the  increasing political importance of religious accommodation for Muslims, academic research on this subject also burgeoned. Nevertheless, most research has focussed on how states accommodate Muslim religious practices. The sociological literature focussing on workplace  accommodation of Muslim religious practices is still extremely scarce.  Existing research addressing this topic is written by legal scholars  (Alidadi et al., 2012) or from a management perspective (Lund Dean et  al., 2015). The present paper fills this gap by presenting a qualitative  scrutiny of 400 demands for religious accommodation in the workplace in Belgium.
