Association for Bahá’í Studies

The Association for Bahá’í Studies was founded in Canada, in 1975, to promote the advanced study of the Bahá’í Faith and its application to the needs of humanity. Soon afterward, the Association expanded to serve North America.

The Association for Bahá’í Studies–North America now engages participants across Canada and the United States. It holds an annual conference and sponsors seminars and symposia. It publishes a peer-reviewed journal, The Journal of Bahá’í Studies, occasional books and monographs, as well as other publications. It is also engaged in a number of initiatives to advance Bahá’í studies among students and young adults and to stimulate broader interest in Bahá’í studies.
