Call for Papers - Eight International Conference on Islamic Economics & Finance

Eight International Conference on Islamic Economics & Finance
"Sustainable Growth and Inclusive Economic Development From An Islamic Perspective"
Doha, Qatar
December 25-27, 2011


Call for Papers:  The global economy continues to face the perennial problems of poverty, persistent youth unemployment, excessive inequalities of income and wealth, high levels of inflation, large macroeconomic and budgetary imbalances, exorbitant debt-servicing burdens, inadequate and aging public utilities and infrastructure, skyrocketing energy prices, and growing food insecurity. The reoccurring regional and global financial crises further intensify and magnify these problems particularly for the underprivileged segments of the world population. As a result, many countries are at the risk of failing to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set by the United Nations. However, some countries also present optimistic experiences to share, and from which useful lessons can be drawn for shaping the future economic scene in other countries.

The Eighth International Conference on Islamic Economics and Finance is jointly being organized by the Qatar Foundation’s Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS) through its Islamic Economics and Finance Center, the Islamic Development Bank Group through its Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI), and the International Association for Islamic Economics with the support of other stakeholders. The Conference will provide a platform for dialogue and discussions between policymakers, academics, researchers, graduate students, and practitioners to address the problems of poverty alleviation, inclusive economic growth, and macroeconomic stability from the perspective of the Islamic Economics and Finance discipline. The Conference will be held for three days during December 25 – 27, 2011 in Doha, Qatar.
Theoretical and empirical research papers are invited in Arabic and English languages for submission to the Conference in the following and related areas, subject to the conditions described in this announcement.

Tickets and Hotel: One author of each accepted paper will be paid by IRTI round-trip economy class air tickets, and hotel stay, including food during the conference.
