"Is Islamic Economics and Finance Theory & Practice in the Right Direction? A Critical Reflection on the Present and Strategic Insights for the Future"

Call for Papers

The 8th World Islamic Economics & Finance Conference (WIEFC 2025) invites scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and students to critically evaluate the current trajectory of Islamic Economics and Finance. This year’s conference theme assesses whether Islamic Economics and Finance are progressing appropriately in theory and practice, aligning with the foundational Islamic principles amid modern socio-economic complexities. As we build on the knowledge and discussions from previous WIEFC conferences (2018-2024), this conference is pivotal in ensuring that Islamic finance remains relevant and robust against global challenges such as environmental sustainability, digital disruptions, and macroeconomic uncertainties. Our discussions will navigate through the conversion of national economies towards Islamization, the role and future prospects of the Islamic finance industry within global economic frameworks, and the strategic steps needed for further integration and compliance with Shariah principles. In particular, the conference will address questions and topics such as:


  1. Conversion of the national economy to Islamization: Where do we stand now?
  2. Where are we on the socio-economic agenda concerning the Islamic Finance industry?
  3. Sustainability and Islamic Economics: Navigating Environmental and Climate Challenges
  4. How can stakeholders—including banks, capital markets, Takaful, regulators, governments, and academia—unite to advance the global Islamic economics and finance agenda?
  5. Macroeconomic Uncertainties: What solutions do Islamic economics and finance offer?
  6. Digital Disruption and Artificial Intelligence: Advancing Islamic Finance Theory and Practice
  7. Human Capital in Islamic Finance
  8. Strategic Leadership in Islamic Economics and Finance
  9. Concerns about Shariah Compliance of Islamic Financial Products


Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts in English and Urdu in MS Word only.

Selected Papers will be published in the Following places
•    As chapters in an Edited Book by Taylor & Francis (Scopus)
