INCEIF is set to co-host the 5th Islamic Finance, Banking & Business Ethics (IFBBE) conference, which will be held virtually for the first time.
 
The global conference, scheduled for 7 June 2021, is themed “Inclusion, sustainability and ethics at a time of global change”. The main host for IFBBE 2021 is Suleman Dawood School of Business, Lahore University of Management Sciences (SDSB-LUMS) in Pakistan, which recently received the AACSB accreditation. INCEIF was the main host of IFBBE 2017. In 2019, INCEIF co-hosted the conference with SDSB-LUMS and Universitat Jaume-I of Spain with the main host, Universitat de Valencia of Spain.
 
This year’s conference will be held in the wake of rapid changes to the global economy and new challenges facing humanity. Therefore, scholars and academics need to formulate new thoughts and re-evaluate existing theories and policies. Effective policies and initiatives are required to address disruption due to digital innovation, rising protectionism, widening gap between the rich and the poor, and many more similar poignant matters.
 
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 was all the more evident since it came 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, Suleman Dawood School of Business has invited submissions of 1,000-word abstracts or full papers (5,000 to 10,000 words) on related topics i.e research papers or case studies. The deadline for the submission is 15 April 2021. (Click here for details https://ifbbe.lums.edu.pk/)
 
IFBBE 2021 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.
 
INCEIF’s Associate Dean of School of Graduate & Professional Studies, Assoc Prof Dr Eskandar Mohd Shah, is one of the members of IFBBE 2021 Scientific Committee. INCEIF Alumni Assistant Prof Dr Irum Saba of Institute of Business Administration, Karachi, and Associate Prof Dr Syed Aun Raza Rizvi of SDSB-LUMS are also members of the committee.

iTEKAD supports micro-enterprise and entrepreneurship and will be expanded in 2021 to include a wider network of partners. iTEKAD is a prime example of an effective social finance initiative where Islamic finance plays a key, central role. Instead of mere seed capital, beneficiaries are also offered training and mentorship, thereby increasing the chances of success for their enterprises. What factors are fundamental to the success of this important initiative, how can this and other micro-enterprise support facilities contribute to the recovery of the Malaysian SME sector, and what role do Islamic financial institutions play?
