How does religion matter in the marketplace for minority settings? The case of Muslim consumers in France
AbstractThis article proposes to go beyond the view of consumer religiosity as a stable characteristic. Rather, focusing on minority cultural settings, this research presents religiosity as a mobilized resource or a constraint the consumer faces in purchasing environments. The context preceding the situation as well as the marketplace are identified as the causes of the contextualized impact of religiosity in consumer decision making. The objective of this research is to explore this phenomenon in order to identify the factors intervening in the process.
