“Local and Global identities. Social change and Ibadi diaspora communities.”

Date: May 20-23 2017

Venue: The University of Tokyo, Center for Middle Eastern Studies (Komaba Campus), Tokyo, Japan

The first international conference on Ibadi Studies was held in a European university, at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, on November 9-10, 2009. Since then six more conferences took place in various European universities and foundations that are well known for their academic cultivation of Arab-Islamic and Oriental studies.

The conferences examine a wide range of research and pertain to an interdisciplinary introduction to Ibadism and the Ibadi Studies through historical, religious, anthropological, political, and ethno-archeological approaches, as well as to the religion and theology of Ibadism, Ibadi jurisprudence and history, and cover a long historical period from the Basra period up to the Nahda period (Islamic renaissance) and Ibadism today.
