This article is focused on religious integration processes – regarding particurarly the Islam – that are putting pressure on traditional conceptualizations of domestic law, and especially the relation between private and public interest concerning freedom of religion. The religious pluralist paradigm spur increasingly overlapping claims to authority, while religion, as a significant component in the construction of individual and collective identity, is more and more visible also in the public space. This paper traces the rise of the pluralism, the different integration models in France and Uk and normative and jurisprudence concerns about them, as well as some broader implications it holds for the study of law.
