Despite an evaluation by an international peer-review committee that rated The International Institute for the Study of Islam in the Modern World (ISIM) as an excellently performing, internationally leading institute in its field, the institute has been closed as per 1 January 2009, due to the lack of adequate funding. ISIM was set up ten years ago by the universities of Leiden, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Nijmegen, and the Netherlands Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The objective of the institute has been to carry out innovative research into the social, political, cultural and intellectual trends and movements in present-day Muslim communities and societies worldwide.
ISIM Review

The ISIM Review carries research articles by scholars throughout the world, enabling its readers to follow trends in research and offering background information on current developments and events relevant to Islam and Muslim societies. In 2005 the name of the ISIM Newsletter has been changed to ISIM Review to more accurately reflect the publication’s objective of providing a review of debates and research on contemporary Muslim societies and communities in an accessible manner to a broad readership.
On this page you find an overview of all the ISIM Reviews (incl. Newsletter) over the years with links to the full issue or separate articles (from no. 13 onwards). When you refer to an article in the Review the usual guidelines apply but please include both the download link and the link of this page and date of access. The reason for this is that I cannot guarantee the download links will remain the same, the URL of this page however will not change.

It is not possible at this moment to search within the documents. If you would like this and depending on the technical possibilities, I will add this feature in the near future.
