The 6th International Islamic Monetary Economics and Finance Call for Papers & Webinars (IIMEFC 2020)


The 6th International Islamic Monetary Economics and Finance Call for Papers & Webinars (IIMEFC), October 27 – 28, 2020

A leading education and research institution, Bank Indonesia Institute – Bank Indonesia, is pleased to host The 6th International Islamic Monetary Economics and Finance Call for Papers & Webinars on “Rethinking the Developmental Role of Islamic Economy and Finance in the Era of Rising Digitalization, Declining Globalization and Uncertainties”. The ongoing unprecedented global economic challenges have brought us to a new face of economic interaction both micro and macro. In turn, these will change almost everything the way we used to live, including in Islamic Economic and Finance (IEF), although the foundations of IEF are stay the same. Accordingly what we need is to rethink IEF in the light of rising digitalization, declining globalization and emerging pandemic or looming uncertainties ahead.

For the above reasons, JIMF raises such concern on the 6th International Islamic Monetary Economics and Finance Call for Papers & Webinars which constitutes one of the event series of Indonesia Sharia Economic Festival (ISEF) on October 2020 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
