Islamically aligned corporate governance principles that apply to Islamic banking are dubbed as Shari'ah corporate governance. Corporate governance is essential to achieve optimal performance of any company. Without good corporate governance principles, a company could be described as a boat withour a rudder, which has no mission and vision to achieve.

  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas; Zaidi, Iqbal (2006-12-01)

  • This paper attempts to set out the principal issues that need to be resolved in formulating a proposal for quotas and voice reform in the IMF that could command broad support.

The implementation of this process suggests, among other things, that a major revision of the quota formulas is long overdue, and leaving this unaddressed raises serious questions regarding the IM...
