About the series:
The International Conference on Islamic Economics and Finance (ICIEF) is the leading academic conference in the discipline organized by the International Association for Islamic Economics (IAIE) in collaboration with other key stakeholders, including the Islamic Research and Training Institute, Islamic Development Bank. It is the pioneering international conference on Islamic economics organized first in Makkah Al Mukaramah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in 1976 under the auspices of King Abdulaziz University and has since been held in numerous locations around the world. The conference as such has contributed immensely to the promotion of Islamic economics and finance. Since 2011, the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS), of Hamad bin Khalifa University, Qatar Foundation, has also become a key partner in organizing the conference.
Disseminating research presented at ICIEF to the greatest number of researchers interested in the topic is important. It not only advances the discourse, but also grants those who did not have the privilege of attending the conference to partake in the discussion. To this end, this series of five volumes (two in Arabic to follow) presents the proceedings of 8th and 9th conferences, which were held in Doha and Istanbul respectively in 2011 and 2013. Each volume focuses on a particular sub-theme within the broader theme of Developing Inclusive and Sustainable Economic and Financial Systems.
For over twenty years, Islamic financial markets have demonstrated strong growth in both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, thereby signaling continued interest by consumers and investors in this niche financial sector. Such growth, however, should not be taken for granted as it comes with its own set of challenges that need to be studied and aptly addressed. The recent financial crisis, which shook markets and economies around the globe, is great evidence that market corrections eventually occur irrespective of astounding growth rates that may be experienced at times. Years have passed since the onset of the recent financial crisis, the worst since the Great Depression of 1929, yet we continue to witness some of its aftershocks on a daily basis. Researchers and policy makers in Islamic finance should take heed of the crisis, lest it spread to the young and vibrant Islamic financial sector. Early prevention and weakness correction is important because by the time a crisis hits, the powerful waves of market correction will be too strong to withstand, potentially devastating the Islamic financial industry. To this end, Volume IV: Ethics, Governance and Regulation in Islamic Finance, addresses some of the most challenging contemporary issues that the industry faces.
