CALL FOR PAPERS

As the world struggles to recover from increasingly frequent financial and economic crises, OIC countries have the opportunity to

embrace Islamic economics as an indigenous approach to guide their economic policy responses. However, for this to meaningfully

happen, both the Islamic theoretical foundations and their connections to policy making and implementation must be given greater

attention and be integrated. The theme for the 2013 conference is “Islamic Economic Solutions for OIC Countries: Theory and

Policy”. Specifically, papers are invited in the following tracks:

INTRODUCTION

 

The teaching of Islamic economics has made in-roads to many institutes of higher learning around

the globe, from Indonesia to England.  This coincides with the development of the discipline and

the practice of Islamic economics, banking and finance over the last three decades. The

establishment of the OIC and IDB has also provided important avenues for the practical

implementation of programs aimed at increasing economic and financial cooperation among

member countries. While we can be proud of, and continue to develop Islamic Banking and

Finance, we must also admit that there is also growing skepticism that IBF cannot sustain itself

without theoretical foundations and that OIC countries will not adopt Islamic economics unless

viable connections be made to link policy to valid Islamic economic theory, and this journey of

linking theory and policy is only just starting. More serious work is needed to enhance the

theoretical and applied studies in Islamic economics, banking and economic cooperation among

Muslim countries. Realizing the importance of continuous assessment on the progress of the

discipline and the extent of its development and applications, ICIE2013 is organized. Taking the

state of the art and the direction of the field into account, we propose that this conference would

focus on the development of the discipline and its application in the economies of OIC countries.

 

The theme of the conference is ‘Islamic Economic Solutions for OIC Countries: Theory and

Policy’. As the world struggles to recover from increasingly frequent financial and economic crises,

OIC countries have the opportunity to embrace Islamic economics as an indigenous approach to

guide their economic policy responses. However, for this to meaningfully happen, both the Islamic

theoretical foundations and their connections to policy making and implementation must be given

greater attention and be integrated. ICIE2013 provides a platform to bring together both

academics and policy makers to discuss how greater effort can be made in this direction.

 

It is hoped that the papers presented in this conference will serve not only to evaluate our past

performance, but to also chart out possible directions to follow in the future, at both the theoretical

and policy levels. In addition, this conference will serve as a forum for academicians, policy makers

and implementers, practitioners, professionals, students and other interested parties to argue,

criticize, and discuss the various topics to be covered.

 

Focus will be on the following three major areas:

 

1. Islamic Economics

 

a. Islamic economic system and Islamic economy   b. Theoretical and policy studies dealing with the development of Islamic economics and

finance

c. Comparative studies on the foundations and structure of existing economies as compared to

the Islamic model   d. Literature surveys for use as teaching material at the university level

 

2. Policy issues confronting the OIC countries and how Islamic economics can be utilized to

provide real-world solutions to these challenges

 

a. Poverty and income distribution   b. Entrepreneurship development and financial services for micro and medium-sized enterprises

(SMEs)   c. Role of Muslim women in the economy   d. Existing legal, tax and regulatory framework from the Islamic economic and finance

perspectives   e. Use of zakah- and awqaf-based social safety-nets in Muslim countries   f. Economic indebtedness of the OIC countries   g. Role of Islamic Development Bank in economic development of the OIC countries

 

3. Islamic finance

 

a. Emerging issues in the area of Islamic banking and finance

b. Role of monetary policy   c. Stability of the Islamic financial system   d. Islamic response to regional/global economic and financial crises
