The Role of Multilateral Institutions in Promoting Islamic Finance

Fong Auditorium

Multi-lateral institutions such as the World Bank, United Nations, and Islamic Development Bank, have increasingly identified Islamic finance as an area of opportunity. The missions of these institutions in supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and promoting human development align strongly with the core values of Islamic finance. Further, Islamic finance is increasingly important in regions served by these institutions. Our panel will explore the ways in which multilateral institutions have engaged with Islamic finance: their rationale (why), their strategies (how), and their organization model (who).
