From July 5 – 6, 2012 the Irish Business Executives Forum and the Saudi Arabia based International Islamic Forum for Dialogue will co-host the conference Islamic Economy and World Peace – Islamic Perspective in the Dublin Convention Center, Dublin Ireland.
Some might wonder why a conference on global economics should find its way to be announced on the interfaith pages of the IRFWP.
The answer lies in the self-expressed purposes and observations delineated in the conference invitation: “Peaceful cooperation and co-existence are not possible in the presence of economic instability,” and secondly the conveners’ plans for conferees “to examine the relationship between economic stability and social stability.”
Attempts until now to address the global financial meltdown strictly in terms of economic theory and speculation while ignoring the moral failures informing the collapse has been misguided as a starting point at best.
This conference promises to take good steps toward approaching this historical time of transition from a more holistic grasp of human affairs.
