This article is based on a field research in the area of Bologna on the matter of halal slaughtering, the method of butchering that accords with Islamic religious practice. The research focuses on the migrants’ strategies for practising Islamic methods of slaughtering in the European context: it gives a perspective on expectations, negotiations and actions in different social subsystems, based on reviewing the literature, undertaking second-level statistical analysis, directly observing halal butchers’ shops and interviewing Islamic butchers, imams, bureaucrats and the representatives of shopkeepers unions. Halal slaughtering was studied from two different perspectives: on the one hand, the everyday life of Islamic butchers’ shops and, on the other, an exceptional festival the Aid al-kabir. Attention is focused primarily on the relationships between informal arrangements and institutional frameworks, also in a comparative perspective.
