The queering of ethnicity in Europe refers to Europe’s deliberate indifference to non-European minorities. This concluding chapter discusses how three methodological approaches have been used to resolve queering ethnicity in Europe. These are: the accounts of African and Muslim feminist activists, African diaspora theory, and African and Muslim queer theory—all of which have been prominent during the inauguration of the EU-sponsored Museum of Europe. These approaches are used to address these questions: who is allowed to speak and who is not? What can and cannot be said? From which position are we speaking and with what authority? This chapter concludes that effective communication might be the solution to queering ethnicity in Europe.

Keywords:   queering ethnicity, African diaspora theory, African feminist activists, Muslim feminist activists, African queer theory, Muslim queer theory
