  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath; Hasan, Rusni (2011)

  • India and Maldives have enjoyed warm and friendly affairs since Maldives became independent in 1965. Disputes between the two countries have been negligible. In November 1988, at the behest of the Maldivian government, Indian paratroopers and naval forces crushed a coup attempt by mercenaries. This was known at the time as Operation Cactus. India's action, viewed by some critics as an indication of Indian ambitions to be a regional police officer, were regarded by countries such as the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain, Nepal, and Bangladesh as legitimate assistance to a friendly government and in keeping with India's strategic role in South Asia. In the 1980s and 1990s, Indian...

  • Mention any developed nation like the United States or Japan, and one thing comes to mind as the reason for their success: research. Fuelled by research in various areas, these developed nations have progressed not only materialistically but also holistically. “Research is what brings these nations to where they are. Even today with many Americans not as interested in hard sciences, the government is still focused on getting people from everywhere around the world to lead this sector to support the government initiatives,” says Dr. Mohd-Pisal Zainal, Head of Research and Publication at The Global University of Islamic Finance (INCEIF).

  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas (2014)

  • Before the inception of the Islamic finance industry (IFI), there was what could be called a 'market failure' in the conventional financial system: significant unmet demand for Shari'a-compliant financial products. IFI grew out of conventional finance to meet this demand. Muslim scholars writing since the 1970s emphasized that Islamic finance was about risk-sharing (or profit/loss-sharing) contracts (see Siddiqi, 1985).

  • Authors: Mahomed, Ziyaad (2017)

  • The global Islamic banking and finance industry has been growing consistently notwithstanding the periodic shocks and turbulence economic conditions in various parts of the world. However, looking ahead, what would ensure the growth of the industry and maintain its value proposion? We consider some of these emerging trends. Arguably, the two most significance trends in the financial service space have been the rise of advanced financial technology and the buzz on the "green economy" or sustainable financing.

  • The breakdown of trust and cooperation as well as the failure of institutions to govern effectively can be attributed as the critical causes of the global financial meltdown. This research will extend the behavioural investigation into testing the level of adherence towards these rules of behaviour in the members of society - specifically separated into two groups, Muslims and non-Muslims. This research will analyze the comparative behaviours of Muslims and non-Muslims using selected games (from the body of published work on behavioural and experimental games). The experimental games will be carried out on test subjects in Singapore as well as in Malaysia from diverse backgrounds ...<...

  • Throughout the world, the income gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen. This disparity in income has become more obvious in the last two decades as the income of the vast majority of the world's population has been somewhat stagnant over time, while small segments of the population experience an upward trend in income. In a recent report by (Oxfam 2016), it is reported that income inequality is spiralling out of control and this is a dangerous trend that poses significant threat to the global sustainability. Income inequality is not only a problem peculiar to the developed world, but also developing countries such as Muslim countries (OIC countries) as they have in rece...

  • There has been considerable research providing evidence of a negative link between natural resource abundance and economic growth leading to the coining of the term 'resource curse' (Yuxiang & Chen, 2009; Anshasy & Katsaiti, 2011). The member states of the Islamic Cooperation Countries (OIC) comprise 57 countries, including those that are resource rich. Given that oil exports revenue has been the main resource contributor, it is expected that continuous increase in fuel prices over the past decade would have positioned the OIC countries at the forefront of economic performance and growth ...

  • Islamic finance is now at the stage of internationalisation, witnessing greater integration between the Islamic financial industry and the global financial system. Islamic finance has gradually evolved to become a dynamic and competitive form of financial intermediation. The Islamic financial industry has been developing ways to facilitate its interaction and integration into the global financial system. We see Islamic finance attracting the attention of the global audience and transcending religious, political and geographical boundaries.
