Problems of Post-Communism , Volume 67, pp 338-347; doi:10.1080/10758216.2019.1631181
Abstract: Novy Urengoy, in the oil-and-gas rich Yamalo-Nenets autonomous Okrug, became a central place for migrants, giving birth to an active Muslim community that found itself several times under the Russian media spotlight for its division and radicalization. The article looks first at institutional struggle to control the city’s Muslim community, before delving deeper into its ideological divisions and its unity in adapting practices to Far North. It concludes by discussing the arrival of new, power-related interactions between the North Caucasus and the largest Muslim community in Russia’s gas capital. This article is based on fieldwork conducted in March 2018.
