​​​Abdou Filali-Ansary Occasional Paper Series​​​



This Series is in honour of the Founding Director of AKU-ISMC, Abdou Filali-Ansary, a well-known scholar and public figure whose work closely aligns to the vision and mission of AKU-ISMC. In this Series, we publish progressive, innovative research to generate discussion and ​​​contribute to the advancement of knowledge. ​

The papers represent work from 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 the Institute. We also offer the opportunity for our Masters students who have won the best thesis award to publish an abridged version of their thesis with us. We welcome submissions from external researchers that address current AKU-ISMC research priorities. 

The views expressed in the Series are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of AKU-ISMC. Although occasional papers are not formally peer reviewed, they are thoroughly researched and are reviewed by members of our research team. Copyright rests with the authors.​​​
