The Institute of Islamic Studies of Aragon aspires to be “reference center” in Arab studies

The Institute of Islamic Studies and the Middle East of Aragon (IEIOP)is in collaborative works with the University of Zaragoza and the Superior Center for Investigative Sciences to create three research ares related to Arab studies. The three projects include: Humanities (centered on Arab and Islamic studies), Middle East research, and Islamic Art History. The IEIOP saw a change in leadership this week, from Gonzalo Borras to Francisco Pina, signaling a new chapter in the organization’s history and new endeavors on Islam and Arab studies in Spain.
