Islamic Finance Forum
 provides a platform for top Shariah scholars and leaders in the industry to discuss Islamic finance and its potential to affect domestic and global financial markets and economic growth. Topics addressed at the forum include: defining Islamic Law; Shariah financial regulation and practice as applied in Qatar and the larger GCC; how the rise of Gulf capital is affecting financial markets—and how it should be regulated; compatibility of Shariah institutions with U.S. law and regulation; objections by Shariah scholars challenging the permissibility of derivatives under Islamic Law; Islamic Venture Capital; and Dispute Resolution – law, regulation and practice; among other topics.
