ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS
Africa Islamic Economic Foundation is an independent development organization that provides a distinctive Islamic perspective on economic development and social issues as a solution framework for Africa’s economic, social and environmental challenges.We are registered in the republic of Ghana as a non-profit, and our work encompasses a range of advisory, research, policy development and field-building activities to unlock the potential of Islamic finance and private capital to drive inclusive economic growth and development in Africa.
We set the benchmark on public policy and economic development by drawing together the most innovative thinking available from some of the world’s foremost experts and applying that thinking to the challenges facing Africa. We are dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship, leadership development, building thriving communities, and achieving sustainable economic growth. We also offer a platform that provides action-based learning programs, resources, and networks for leaders and entrepreneurs.
Our mission is to help shift the prevailing paradigm of economic development, and of the economy as a whole, towards a new system that is ethical, place-based, inclusive, collaborative, and ecologically sustainable. The main goal of AFRIEF is to encourage a comprehensive consideration of the many facets of Islamic Economics and promote sustainable economic development in Africa at a time of increasing globalization and growing regionalization in the world.
