The global growth of Islamic finance has raised among practitioners and scholars new significant interest in the interaction between law and religion, as well as between ethics and economics.
Consequently, new topical questions are brought to scholarly attention and market practice, such as:
- which is the relation between ethical and Islamic finance?
- is it possible a convergence between Islamic finance and other forms of ethical investments?
- more generally, which are the challenges that pluralism and cultural diversity imply for market economy, with regard to law, economics and business management?
- last, but not least, which are the future prospects for the Islamic financial market?
In the attempt to reply to all these interrelated questions, the Summer School aims at exploring Islamic finance and law according to a multi- and inter-disciplinary perspective, providing attendants with fundamental tools to deal with pluralism in market economy as an opportunity for development and growth.
