"A hub providing scholarly forums dedicated towards reconciling relations amongst Muslims through better understanding the diversity and difference within and across Muslim traditions." FIND OUT MORE THE CENTRE FOR INTRA-MUSLIM STUDIES
Since its inception in 2015, as a joint initiative of a network of Sunni and Shia scholars, CIMS has been at the forefront of providing a platform for honest, open and critical engagement on issues of historical and theological tension amongst Sunni and Shi’i thought.
Meetings (link), held at least four times a year, gather scholars to discuss issues historically understood as points of contention and sometimes deep misunderstanding, learning from each other, identifying points of agreement, difference and scope for reconciling relations through scholarly harmony and understanding.
These gatherings have become a platform for CIMS to work beyond the distinction of Sunni and Shia, thinking together, towards addressing shared challenges.
Verily the believers are brothers…
A hub providing scholarly forums dedicated towards reconciling relations amongst Muslims through better understanding the diversity and difference within and across Muslim traditions.
The work of CIMS goes beyond attempts to polemically defend or ignore historical differences.
Instead it encourages mutual understanding, honest dialogue, critical engagement and collegiality as an impetus for new, joined up, collaborative studies, thinking and teaching which can draw upon, and speak to, a breadth of Muslim traditions beyond the limits of sectarian narratives
