Sharia Economics This Year (SETY) 2013 will be coming up in November this year with a brand new design of SENSATION. SENSATION will hold series of event and will be closed by International Seminar of Sharia Economics on the theme “Miracle of Islamic Economics: Improving Global Resilience towards Balanced Growth and Development”. The seminar will be held on November 30 at Auditorium-MM UGM.
Why did we raise this theme? “The Miracle of Islamic Economics” is an optimism of developing Islamic economics to face global challenges nowadays. The background issues behind this theme are the crisis occuring in a shorter range of time, financial resilience, and economic resilience awareness in order to create global resilience towards economic growth and balanced development. As more than 2,500 businesses, governments and civil societies from more than a hundred countries did discussion in the international meeting-World Economic Forum (WEF) 2013 in Davos-Klosters within the theme: Resilient Dynamism, it reamins a big question on how to achieve global resilience to be implemented through the Developmemt Agenda.
Islamic economics as a growing and developing study around the globe has the right momentum and opportunity to contribute through its basic principle in creating maslahah and rahmatanlil’alamin. Moreover, IMF study (IMF Survey Magazine-IMF Research : 2010) declared that Islamic banks are more resilience to crisis. Now then, can Islamic economics act as one of the solutions to manage global challenges and create global resilience?
International Seminar Sety 2013 invites academicians and practitioners to share their findings, ideas, and insights on how to reach global resilience and how Islamic Economics can contribute.
