5TH ISLAMIC FINANCE, BANKING & BUSINESS ETHICS GLOBAL CONFERENCE

INCLUSION, SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICS IN THE MODERN WORLD 

1-2 June 2020 at Pearl-Continental Bhurban, Pakistan 
 

 

 

In the wake of rapid changes to the global economy and new challenges facing humanity, there is a need for scholars and academics to formulate new thoughts and reevaluate existing theories and policies. Effective policies and initiatives are required to address disruption due to digital innovation, rising protectionism, the widening gap between the rich and the poor, and many more similar poignant matters.
 

This conference aims to address specific issues related to inclusion, sustainability and ethics. In particular, the conference will address questions such as:

 

• How to contribute to a sustainable transformation of the society through socio-economic policies, politics and institutional reforms, and innovation in technology.
• How to promote ethics in business since a majority of the academic literature, particularly religious bent literature, seems to be either theologically oriented or superficial and inadequate in its assessment.
• How to enhance financial inclusion through formal and non-formal financial institutions.

 

With Islamic finance progressing rapidly over the last decade, questions have started arising on its role in developing a more sustainable, and inclusive world through the religio-based economic system. The success of the Islamic financial industry is all the more evident since it has come during a period when the conventional financial industry was experiencing a crisis. From the Olympic Village in London to Burj Khalifa in Dubai, shariah compliant investments are making inroads on a global scale.

 

With this in mind SDSB-LUMS, invite 1000-word abstracts or full papers (5000 to 10,000 words) i.e., Research Papers, and Case Studies.
