The Institut du monde arabe, ("Institute of the Arab World") in Paris, or Institut is the only institution of its kind in Europe. It was financed by the French government and state funds from 22 Arabic countries to reinforce Franco-Arabic exchanges at all levels.
Established in a magnificent setting designed by none other than Jean Nouvel, the IMA is made up a number of elements: a museum, exhibition centre, display halls, a library and bookshop, conference halls, an auditorium, and so on.
