The Centre of Islamic Studies works with a number of partner organisations to help it deliver its objectives. Further information about our regular partners is available below.
The Gulf Research Centre Cambridge
The Gulf Research Centre Cambridge (GRC-C) has been established by the Geneva-based Gulf Research Centre with the view of fostering and promoting academic studies and policy oriented research on the Gulf region – i.e. the Gulf Cooperation Council member countries of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as Iran, Iraq and Yemen. GRC-C also aims to encourage scholarly cooperation and exchange between Gulf-based and UK-based academics through organising conferences, seminars, workshops and meetings related to Gulf issues and through publication of its research output.
The Gulf Research Centre Cambridge is a registered charity organization under the Charity Commission for England and Wales and can therefore receive tax deductible donations.
The next Gulf Research Meeting will take place between 21 – 23 July 2020 at the University of Cambridge. For more information and the call for papers please click here.

The Islamic Manuscript Association
The Islamic Manuscript Association (TIMA) is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting Islamic manuscript collections and supporting those who work with them. It was formed in response to the urgent need to address the poor preservation and inaccessibility of many Islamic manuscript collections around the world. The Islamic Manuscript Association is one of the principal projects of the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation.
