On November 24, 2012, at the Center for Research on Islamic Studies of Tashkent Islamic University affiliated to the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan the seminar on actual issues of Islamic studies and training of Islamologists was held.

Tashkent Islamic University is the first institution aimed at teaching academic Islamology in the territory of the former USSR. It was founded in 1999 by the order of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Its administration and professors take an important mission to educate young people as good experts in the history and doctrine of Islam, while maintaining religious tolerance, respect to national cultural traditions, immunity to extremist trends of ‘pure’ Islam preachers.

Leading professors, lecturers, and doctoral students of Tashkent Islamic University took part in the seminar. Dr Stanislav M. Prozorov, the deputy director of the IOM RAS, was invited as a guest of honor to submit his key speech on the current situation with Islamological education in Russia.

The Chancellor of the University, Prof Ravshan Abdullaev, Prof S. Agzamkhodzhaev and other speakers emphasized the important role of Russian experts in Islamic studies, particularly from Leningrad/St Petersburg, in training academics for Uzbekistan and expressed wish to develop cooperation with relevant academic and educational centers of the Russian Federation.
