We are looking forward to welcoming our esteemed guests who will be taking part in our two-day academic conference. This conference will bring together subject experts from different countries to discuss, explore and engage in this interesting and relatively unexplored topic area.
This Conference aims to examine the financial gaps among Muslim refugee and immigrant communities and how Islamic finance can respond to this by creating financial inclusion and empowerment of these communities. Additionally, this Conference will promote inclusive discussions on generational policies aimed at improving these issues for Muslim entrepreneurs and developing innovative learning tools for key stakeholders.
Papers examining the aforementioned issues, as well as innovative and creative ideas in Islamic moral economy and finance, challenges for Muslim entrepreneurs, and sustainable micro-finance and entrepreneurial development projects are welcomed for submission.
As the first of its kind to take place in Scotland and the wider UK, the Conference will explore successful financial integration of Muslim refugees and immigrant entrepreneurs, understanding how this leads to increasing equality, labour market integration, and access to healthy workplaces.
