The research aims to examine the face of Sunni Islam in Argentina, using the case study of the Sunni community in Buenos Aires. The methods used in this research derive from an understanding that transnational communities maintain a dual connection to a place: they have emotional affinity to their physical place of origin whilst developing a bond with the spiritual place, which has global impact and a dynamic development. This research examine the religionalisation processes that are linked to the sense of identity of the community members. This identity was formed by a number of factors that operated simultaneously and led to a renewal of the old Islamic identity within the third and fourth generations of Muslims in Argentina.
