Sufism and Sufi Orders in Africa 

This huge research project is focusing on the following subject: the Sufi orders in Africa; the history of Sufism in Africa; the struggle between Sufis and radical Muslims throughout Africa; Sufi resistance movements against colonialism throughout Africa; reform movements among the Sufis; Sufi orders and indigenous African religions and customs; cult of the saints and shrines throughout Africa; and Sufi orders among the Muslims in the African Diaspora.

A special focus will be given to the question of who will finally have the upper hand in the struggle between Sufis and radical Muslims in Africa.
