Selected papers from the first International Ibn Khaldun symposium have been published in Turkish (Turkish Journal of Islamic Studies, 2006) and English (Asian Journal of Social Science, 2008). The papers from the second International Symposium on Ibn Khaldun, held in 2009, will also be published in English and Turkish.
