The creation of a global maqasid research network is crucial for generating critical mass of intellectual activities and contributions that can accumulate and build on each other to generate breakthrough ideas. With the objective of providing a conducive environment and resources to collaborate, learn and produce quality research, the network will be designed like an ecosystem. The core infrastructure of the network is web-based to harness the intellectual talents of researchers worldwide efficiently and effectively. Other major components of the network are: researchers database, digital library, e-learning, research training, publishing, and discussion forums. As a fundamental source for the renewed maqasid paradigm being developed, MI will encourage and guide efforts to generate research in the following key areas: Islamic jurisprudence, public policy, development, and women and minorities. Specific research questions and gap analysis of where research efforts should be focused and what resources are needed will also be generated through surveys of the participants in the system.
