About the Conference
Of the many explanations relating to the catastrophic global financial crisis of 2008 some view it as a crisis confined to the banking and securities industry while others see it to be more fundamental than that. The financial crisis was a reflection of a much deeper crisis within traditional economics and finance which can also be regarded as a crisis of Western Institutional design-financial architectures based upon flawed principles of lending. A growing number of influential thinkers see the crisis as a series of institutional failures in how the financial services industry is governed and have examined in some depth the structure and regulation of financial services, questions of governance, issues of ethics and financial innovation. These individual subjects are, however, interrelated and some can complement others but they have not been examined together as a total system; nor have alternative approaches to institutional design founded on a set of alternative ethical principles. The big unanswered questions are what mix of regulation, governance, innovation and ethics will fix the financial system and what insights can non-western thinking contribute to the discussion.
The present Conference is expected to provide a forum for discussion and critical analysis of the major challenges in finance and banking sector and networking amongst academics, policy-makers, research students, practitioners and Post Graduate students in the subject.
