Islamic Finance plays an ever-growing role in worldwide commerce, development and consumer access to finance. Each year throws up new questions and challenges for leading practitioners in the field and for the academics who research and teach on the principles and mechanisms of Islamic Finance.
This summer school is not a traditional retreat for academic teaching. It is an active platform for questioning, dialogue and discovery of “Current Policy Issues and Solutions in Islamic Finance”.
