Purpose and Theme

Interest in Islamic banking has grown considerably during the last decade. The main issues of concern are the conceptual framework and viability of interest-free banking, and the assessment of its performance and future. In a world where conventional interest-based finance is the dominant framework, Islamic banking faces many challenges that must be addressed. The purpose of the 2nd LAU Banking and Finance International Conference is to analyze the past experiences of Islamic banks, to provide an objective assessment of their success and failure, and to discuss the contemporary issues and challenges confronting them.

The conference is intended to bring together academics, finance and accounting professionals, and policy makers who have a dedicated interest in Islamic banking and finance. Your perspective may be international, regional or local. The conference welcomes all contributions and papers on this important issue or any other related topic.
