This article discusses Islamic Religious Education ( re ) in present day Cyprus on both the southern and northern sides the dividing line established in 1974. re is understood in its broadest sense to include re classes in formal education, Qur’an teaching in a mosque-like environment or summer school instruction. First an introductory description of the political background of current Cyprus laws is depicted, followed by an illustration of the actors, past events and options for the future. Case studies on recent conflicts in north Cyprus highlight the political aspect of providing or rejecting re . Lastly, the article raises the question as to how the differing approaches to re in north and south Cyprus could be integrated once the Cyprus Conflict has been settled.
