The current economic establishment is often perceived as unjust, because the profit motive displaces real economic needs of human beings. For the last half-century, Islamic Economics and Islamic Finance have been proposed as an alternative to the current economic system, supposedly founded on the teachings of the Islamic faith. The following interdisciplinary seminar aims to shed light on the historical development, the theological and ethical foundations and current trends in the industry. Also, we will highlight discrepancies between normative prescriptions and their practical realization.
The following subtopics will be discussed:
- Short introduction to the Islamic faith, its main sources, economic and legal aspects.
- Main features of an "Islamic economy" and differentiation from “conventional models”
- Trade-offs between ideal conceptions and economic reality
- Realization attempts and main issues
- Development and current trends in the Islamic finance industry
