Local and Global identities. Social Change and Diaspora in the Ibadi Communities (Tokyo, 20-23 mai 2017)

The 8th International Conference on Ibadism and Ibadism Studies took place from May 20 to 23 at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies (UTCMES) at the Tokyo University, Japan. The symposium was part of a series of conferences organized since 2009 at several universities around the world, bringing together renowned scholars in Arabic and Islamic studies. Each of these conferences addressed a wide range of interdisciplinary research on Ibadism through historical, religious, anthropological, political and ethnoarchaeological approaches, as well as the examination of the theology and jurisprudence of the Ibadism from its origins until our days.
