Global Calls for Economic Justice: the potential of Islamic finance

Download: Audio, Slides

Speaker(s): Mukhtar Hussain, Professor Volker Nienhaus
Chair: Justice Cranston

Recorded on 22 February 2012 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

It is felt that conventional financial systems have failed and should be replaced, or supplemented, by more ethical banking and socially responsible finance. Can Islamic Finance, as a system with a strong religious background and moral framework, satisfy this hope? Mukhtar Hussain is chief executive officer at HSBC Malaysia. Volker Nienhaus is visiting professor, University of Reading.
