Vanessa Vroon-Najem addresses women’s conversion to Islam in the Netherlands through a case study of converted women who participated in five Muslim women’s groups in Amsterdam-West. The research took place between 2006 and 2011. Vroon-Najem hereby focuses on the converts’ ethnic, national and religious belonging, as the concept of belonging has the advantage over the concept of identity in that it designates a dynamic process.
