“Green Finance and Islamic Finance Challenges”

Islamic Finance is a new scholarly discipline that is served by FIFC (and a Society) via organising conferences and publications. The five universities organising this year’s event are: Sunway University, Malaysia (the online host organiser) jointly with Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University & Istanbul Commerce University, Turkey (managing the Istanbul meeting on 8-9 October); La Trobe University, Australia; and  Universitas Indonesia. CFA Society Malaysia and CFA Institute ARX are awarding two prizes for industry papers; and Emerald Publishing is awarding six certificates of excellence to winning author(s). Emerald Publishing Ltd. is associated with this event to advance scholarly endeavour. The consortium is proud to host its twelfth international FIFC live meeting for two days at Istanbul Commerce University and  Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University.

We invite you to participate in the 12-the FIFC 2022 with the theme “Green Finance and Islamic Finance Challenges”. FIFC international series started with a very large financial grant from the Australian Research Council in 2005 to a research team led by Prof Mohamed Ariff then at the Monash University-Melbourne Australia to generate original research to add new authentic literature to the then emerging discipline of Islamic Finance. The first three meetings were held in Melbourne, Australia, after which subsequent meetings were hosted internationally at the Dubai International Finance Centre of United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Durham University, and Lancaster University in the U.K. as well as UUM, INCEIF & Sunway University, in 2021 with Hamad Bin Khalifa University of Qatar, , Istanbul Commerce University, Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University and Istanbul University. This series of conferences has led to publications of nine peer-reviewed books on Islamic Banking, sukuk, financial institutions, wealth management, economics & banking risk published by reputed publishers Routledge, Edward Elgar, John Wiley, etc. as Islamic Finance series. Together with the best papers identified and published after each meeting as well as those published independently in journals over 11 years by paper presenters, there is a strong evidence of creating authentic literature by the FIFC network of eminent international scholars. It is likely, with your contributions, a book is planned to be published in 2024 on Green Finance.

Program: All peer-reviewed accepted papers are to be presented during 4-days (2-days online and 2-days  live presentations/discussions) of your papers following rigorous blind review process for selection of your full papers by International Review Panel.

  1.  Best Paper Awards: 
    • Of the papers presented/discussed as evidencing original contributions to growing literature, six will win the Certificate of Best Paper Award. The winning papers are subsequently considered in one or more journals associated with the 12-th FIFC.
    • Emerald will award, on the advice of the peer review committee, further six papers to be awarded certificates of excellence.
  2. Journals: Several other-than the best papers will be selected by the editor(s) of ranked Scopus-indexed journals associated with the 12-th FIFC. The selected papers will undergo the common journals’ review process, for acceptance, and publication. One journal agreeing to consider papers is: Journal of Islamic Economics and Finance, a publication of the Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University.
  3. Islamic Finance Book: On the subject of Green Finance, several papers pre-commissioned or as submitted papers considered as suitable will be selected as chapters for a book. Papers presented during falling within the coverage of the book may be invited to be included in the book. It is the intention of the organisers to consider publishing this book in 2024 by Routledge: details to be revealed later, after a contract is agreed with a draft book.

What the organisers want to achieve is to pursue knowledge creation in accordance with the paradigm of Islam consistent with human ethics to promote “responsible financial practices”, which extols ethical dealings in financial transactions for the society’s well-being. The Conference aims to enhance awareness on environment and social responsibilities to be the core responsibility of economics and financial practices.
