German term or phrase: Vergemeinschaftung
As in the following sentence in a call for reserch proposals in the field of Islamic studies:

"Über welche spezifischen Vorstellungen von Vergemeinschaftung können dabei gesellschaftliche Radikalisierungen und Mobilisierungen zur Gewalt legitimiert werden?"

I have found "communalisation" and "communitisation" but wondered if anyone in the field knew the best term IN THIS CONTEXT.

Notes to answerer

Asker: yes, the missing 'c' is a typo. The terms you suggest are used within the context of the EU but do you know that they are appropriate in this context?

Asker: Actually, if you Google communalisation and Vergemeinschaftung it seems to associate the term with tonnies and Max Weber and make distinction with Vergesellschaftung - interesting?
