For more than 50 years the International Association for the Study of Arabia (formerly the BFSA) Seminar for Arabian Studies has been the only annual international forum for the presentation of the latest academic research in the humanities on the Arabian Peninsula.

Each year, for three days in the summer, nearly 200 people from across the globe gather to debate the latest research on the region. Up to 50 papers are presented on subjects ranging from archaeology, epigraphy and ethnography, to language, history and art, and from the earliest times to present day.

The MBI Al Jaber Foundation has supported various activities of the IASA including the Seminar for Arabian Studies since 2002. In 2009 this included the donation of the entire collection of Seminar Proceedings to Saudi Arabia’s King Fahad National Library, providing an indispensable resource for scholars and students alike.
