Abstract

This research examines the emerging role of new-halal in two different European contexts: the Hungarian context in which the halal economy is embry-onic, and the British context in which halal industry has reached its present peak of expansion in Europe. Drawing on interviews (with Hungarian Muslim actors of halal) and observant participation in the London Muslim Lifestyle Show 2017, this study attempts to show that halal promoters think of it, beyond its religious dimension, as an economic product, and especially as an ethical-ecological one, designed for non-Muslims as well.
