Working with partners across the University of Cambridge and beyond, from academic institutes to civil society organisations and the government, the Centre has developed a reputation for enriching public debate and knowledge through high-profile and innovative research projects about Islam in the UK, Europe and globally.

The Centre of Islamic Studies organises conferences, on-going lecture series’ and supports special lectures that bring together scholars and other specialists from an international range of universities and research institutes. These provide an opportunity for in-depth discussion around a specific theme of topical interest. These are open to the public and attract high-quality speakers.
