This year, the Summer Programme will take education and Muslim communities as its theme. Co-sponsored by the Centre for the Study of Muslim Societies and Cultures (Simon Fraser University) and AKU-ISMC and held at ISMC’s central-London location at 210 Euston Road, the programme will run from 6-11 July 2015.
