Call for Papers: Law and Development Institute (UAE) Conference

February 1, 2019

The Law and Development Institute will host its tenth annual international conference on law and development in Dubai, UAE, on December 6, 2019 in collaboration with the University of Dubai College of Law and the University of Sharjah College of Law.

Law, legal frameworks, and institutions have significant impact on economic and social development; however, the role of law and legal institutions for development in the Islamic world has not been sufficiently analyzed. This conference will explore this important role on the following sub-topics:

  • The Role of Law for Economic Development in the Islamic World (including Sharia and Development)
  • Islamic Institutions and Development
  • Cases of Successful Development in the Islamic World
  • “Law” as a Bridge Between the Islamic and non-Islamic Worlds for Development
  • Arbitration and Development
  • Economic Crimes (including Financial Crimes) in the Context of Economic Development
