AKU-ISMC Publications address current trends of thought about Islam, Muslims and Muslim societies.​

Abdou Filali-Ansary Occasional P​aper series

publishes progressive, innovative research by affiliated faculty, fellows, researchers, and doctoral students across a wide range of research areas, demonstrating both the depth and breadth of research being undertaken at AKU-ISMC.​​

In Translation: Modern Muslim Thinkers

translates into English important contributions to the contemporary debates of the Muslim world, thereby broadening the current debates around Muslim civilisations, which, although global in scope, often overlook works of new and original thinking produced in Muslim contexts.

Exploring Muslim Contexts​

addresses the contemporary challenges faced by Muslim societies as they evolve in a rapidly globalising world.

Muslim Civilisations A​bstracts (MCA)

publishes abstracts of books produced in Muslim contexts organised around specific themes. These are translated into Arabic, Turkish and English and are published in print and online​.​

Individual Volumes​

illustrate the dynamism of scholarship, the critical reassessment of heritages and histories, the rapidly accelerating impetus towards social change and globalisation, and the urgent upheavals around notions of governance and civil life that are taking place in Muslim communities today.
