Call for contributions
Countries in Asia, such as those from the ASEAN, the Middle East, and the South Asian regions, have been experiencing tremendous growth in Islamic financial and marketing activities. Countries in Asia are best known for the best production opportunities in China, the populous markets of China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, the countries with the cheapest cost of labor, and the countries with immense technological advancement.
The Islamic financial and marketing industries have been growing at a double-digit rate for over a decade now. Referring particularly to the post financial crisis era, challenges of the management of Islamic financial, management and marketing have reached new heights. Islamic financial institutions (IFIs) from South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle Eastern countries hold a major percentage of Islamic assets. New opportunities are opening in the Central Asian countries as well. However, currently, the literature on Islamic finance are particularly limited, and largely focussed on the development of finance and allied industries.
This book is expected to balance these gaps by focusing on Islamic businesses from an Asian perspective and by incorporating, alongside finance, the development of Islamic marketing and management of Islamic businesses. This edited book aims to publish high quality theoretical and empirical findings in the areas of Islamic finance, banking, entrepreneurship, insurance, capital market, Islamic leadership, and Halal marketing. We are planning to include topics on consumer perception, services orientation, new product development, risk management, industry readiness for better customer satisfaction, and policy issues coupling strategy and best practices. Only original research papers based on primary as well as secondary research that are not published elsewhere will be considered. The book is expected to include a number of region-specific studies to explore the principles and practices that will fulfill the need of the academics. We are primarily targeting students and academics as primary readers. Some of the broad areas of interest are listed below:
