Sarajevo Islamic Finance and Economics Conference

About the Sarajevo Islamic Finance and Economics Conference

The Sarajevo Islamic Finance and Economics Conference – SIFEC is an academic conference in the field of Islamic economics and finance. It is the only one of its kind in Southeast Europe. 

The main purpose of the Conference is to gather experts in the field who will present their scientific research or exchange their practical experiences. Subsequently,  it aims to establish a stable network of academics and practitioners in the field who will continuously work on resolving contemporary issues in Islamic finance.

SIFEC contributes to EUIEBIF’s vision of creating a hub for Islamic Economics, Banking and Finance in the SEE Region, a place where East meets West. This is why the Conference is annually hosted in the city of Sarajevo, also known as the second Jerusalem. Sarajevo is a city with many different stories, traditions, cultural and religious diversity, and fantastic touristic opportunities. It is the ideal place to explore Islamic finance in today’s modern world.
