Islam and Scholarship in the Federal Republic of Germany
The GIGA Institute of Middle East Studies and the Goethe Institute intend that the Islam Research Directory should provide lasting assistance towards the establishment of links between researchers. This should boost transfers of knowledge as part of ongoing dialogue, optimising co-operation between research institutions and mediators of culture.
The Islam Research Directory is thus viewed as an instrument for the promotion of dialogue. That objective is pursued by way of systematic stock-taking and networking between scholars, journalists, and political decision-makers in Islamic countries and their counterparts in German and European research set-ups and mediator institutions. The Islam Research Directory receives financial support from the German Federal Ministry of Co-operation.
