The symposium comes under the series of symposia that are being organized by IRCICA since the mid-1980s focusing on the history of Islamic civilization in various regions of the world.

The Second International Symposium on Islamic Civilisation in the Volga-Ural Region will reinforce and further expand the objectives of the 2001 symposium. It will highlight the processes of introduction and development of Islamic civilisation in the Volga-Ural region, the history of the coexistence of cultures and religions, relations between Islam and other religions in intellectual context, the Islamic and the multicultural heritage of the region in various fields of science and learning, and the various contemporary expressions and implications of this historical legacy. It is expected to open new avenues in social science research on the region and promote the existing studies all over the world.
