CIS-QFC International Conference on Islamic Finance and Circular Economy

Islamic finance has come a long way during the last four decades. During its current transformative decade, Islamic finance is facing the challenge of strategic sustainability and in need of revisiting its operational paradigm; as landfills, ecological and environmental degradation, climate change and other factors stressing the planet are widely understood to be the by-products of the current linear approach of the world economy.

This conference, organized by the Center for Islamic Economics and Finance of the College of Islamic Studies with the support of the Qatar Financial Centre, is setting out to probe and take stock of the existing knowledge and prospects for transforming economies to achieve and sustain multidimensional development, bringing together original papers deliberating on Islamic finance and the circular economy.

  1. Circular Economy: An Islamic Perspective 
  2. Circular Economy: Concepts, Models - Challenges and Opportunities
  3. Circular Economy and Islamic Finance
  4. Circular Economy: Urban Innovative Actions and Designs
