Approaches to Islamic banking in the Gulf
Islamic banking is more developed in the Gulf region that anywhere else in the world. Although there is much information and writings on Islamic banking on the Arab side of the Gulf, much less is available on the workings of the Islamic banking system in Iran. The aim here is to examine the very different approaches taken by Iran and its Guld Arab neighbors to Islamic banking. The political factors that determined these different approaches will be analyzed and their implications explored.
