The Centre has developed an international network of personal
and institutional contacts to enable liaison, dialogue and
exchange between the Islamic and Western worlds of learning.
Protocols of academic cooperation exist between the Centre
and many institutions worldwide, facilitating the exchange
of scholars and researchers. The Centre's programme of visiting
fellowships and scholarships plays a key role in these international
activities. Since its inception in 1987 the programme has
brought to Oxford scholars and students from more than forty
countries in Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe.
An expanding programme of visiting fellowships and
scholarships enables the Centre to bring to Oxford scholars from
