About The British Institute for the Study of Iraq

BISI was originally founded as the British School of Archaeology in Iraq in 1932, in memory of the renowned archaeologist and explorer, Gertrude Bell. The Institute's academic coverage now ranges from the study of ancient and pre-modern Iraq to include humanities and social sciences research on modern and contemporary Iraq.

BISI makes grants to promote and undertake research and public education relating to Iraq and neighbouring countries. The Institute’s publications include books on the history and archaeology of Iraq. Since 1934 it has produced the academic journal IRAQ (now published by Cambridge University Press). The Institute organises and supports a range of events, including lectures and study days, often at the British Academy in London but also elsewhere in the UK. We offer grants to Iraqi scholars to visit the UK to engage in research, training and collaborations with academics and heritage professionals.

Around 500 individuals from all over the world choose to be members of the Institute and to support our work to promote research and public education about Iraq.
