Otherhe collapse of the Ottoman Empire was marked by a decision of the new Turkish state to end its role as the seat of the centuries-old Caliphate. For the last century it has been broadly assumed in the West that the Caliphate is only a historical relic.
The re-emergence of armed groups seeking to re-establish a Caliphate, building on many years of advocacy across the Muslim world, reignites the tension between nation states and transnational modes of governance.
Australia played a key role in ending the last caliphate and is part of the battle to deter the current one.
This research forum explores the intersections between Australian society and the Caliphate - externally in the Middle East, and internally in Australia, in the past and in the present.
