Speech by His Highness the Aga Khan: Opening of the Aga Khan Centre, London

The value of education, of course, is at the heart of this project. We are proud to open here a new home for two important educational institutions associated with the Aga Khan Development Network and the Ismaili Imamat. One is the Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations of the Aga Khan University. The other is the Institute of Ismaili Studies. The UK offices of the Aga Khan Foundation will also be located here.

 

These institutions – through their teaching and research, their rich library and archival resources, as well as their tours and public programmes – will enrich the lives of people from the entire world.

 

For those of us who have seen these institutions grow from infancy, it will be a special joy to see them pursue their mission from this beautiful setting.
