About the series: 

The International Conference on Islamic Economics and Finance (ICIEF) is the leading academic conference in the discipline organized by the International Association for Islamic Economics (IAIE) in collaboration with other key stakeholders, including the Islamic Research and Training Institute, Islamic Development Bank. It is the pioneering international conference on Islamic economics organized first in Makkah Al Mukaramah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in 1976 under the auspices of King Abdulaziz University and has since been held in numerous locations around the world. The conference as such has contributed immensely to the promotion of Islamic economics and finance. Since 2011, the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS), of Hamad bin Khalifa University, Qatar Foundation, has also become a key partner in organizing the conference.

Disseminating research presented at ICIEF to the greatest number of researchers interested in the topic is important. It not only advances the discourse, but also grants those who did not have the privilege of attending the conference to partake in the discussion. To this end, this series of five volumes (two in Arabic to follow) presents the proceedings of 8th and 9th conferences, which were held in Doha and Istanbul respectively in 2011 and 2013. Each volume focuses on a particular sub-theme within the broader theme of Developing Inclusive and Sustainable Economic and Financial Systems. 


In the context of the above discussion, the present volume brings together nine papers that have tried to address various aspects of stability of the overall Islamic financial sector (Part I of the book) and risk management methods for individual Islamic financial institutions (Part II of the book). These papers cover ideas on: Islamic Financial Sector Assessment Program (iFSAP), review of literature on stability of Islamic finance, transmission of liquidity shocks through Islamic banks, stress testing methodology for Islamic banks, assessment of Islamic banks’ distress to currency shocks, risk taking and capital decisions of Islamic banks mobilizing profit sharing investment deposits, stability comparison of Islamic and conventional banks in Indonesia, devising new “credit default sharing” instrument to hedge against default, and introducing the concept of performance-at-risk as opposed to value-at-risk as an appropriate tool for risk management in Islamic banks.
