Summer Programme on Islam 2014

The Summer Programme on Islam (SPI) is an annual residential programme that provides a structured, intellectual forum for a diverse group of Ismailis from different regions and professions to participate in an introductory study of Islam and to reflect on contemporary issues engaging Muslim societies.

The programme aims to:

  • Provide participants with the knowledge, perspectives and tools to develop a civilisational approach to the understanding of Islam and Muslim societies.
  • Situate the Ismaili tariqah within the larger context of Islam.
  • Raise questions, reflect upon and engage in discussions on contemporary issues facing Muslim societies and diasporic Muslim communities.
  • Provide a forum in which participants and faculty can develop frameworks and vocabulary to engage with the issues explored during the programme.
The sections below are intended for the use of participants of The Summer Programme on Islam 2014 (SPI 2014).  Please click on the tabs below for appropriate information:
