The Institute’s Summer Programme on Islam is an annual residential programme aimed at providing a social, cultural and civilisational introduction to Islam, situating the Shia Ismaili tariqah within the larger context of the intellectual and historical development of Islam.

The programme encourages critical thinking, reflection and discussion on important contemporary issues and themes of relevance to Islam and its Shia Ismaili tariqah.

The content of the programme focuses on specific themes or case studies which enable participants to deliberate upon aspects of Muslim history, cultures, faith, practices, and particularly the issues associated with tradition, authority and modernity.

The Summer Programme, in its current format, has been offered every year since 2002 up to 2012
