Global Islamic Market: Asian Perspectives on Diversity of Capitalism

22 novembre 2018, 9h30-17h30
60 Rue Mazarine
Financé par l’IRIS Études Globales de PSL, et organisé par Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS

Presented by the Fondation France-Japon of the EHESS with the support of PSL-IRIS Études Globales, this project aims to deliver an encompassing analysis of the configuration of the new economic and religious dynamics within Islamic capitalism, to assist our understanding of the diversity of capitalism. At the occasion to launch this project, this kick-off meeting will reexamine the state of the art of Islamic economies, through the process of its institutionalization and its application into practice by actors. What kind of normative transformation has occurred in the evolution of Islamic economic ideas of Islam? How have the ancient Islamic jurisprudences been interpreted to bring them into modern contexts, especially with regard to geographical and doctrinal differences? How can the development of Islamic capitalism be understood in the context of the global economic system, which includes the secular and non-Muslim world? How Islam is mobilized to legitimate economic activities and to create the system of value? The objective of this kick-off meeting is to understand the historical, political and social context of the Islamic capitalism to further our discussion on the formation of the « Global Islamic Market. » Three panels will be proposed to discuss the genesis, historicity of the economic though of Islam, institutionalizations of Islamic finance, and on a micro level the practices and a role of Muslim entrepreneurs on the Islamic market.
