FUTURE PROJECTS

Operationalizing an Inclusive Islamic Financial Planning Approach: Challenges and Opportunities

Given that poverty is a multi-faceted problem with the understanding that those in poverty are not homogenous, requiring a personalized context to help manage their circumstances, therefore there is a need to consider an inclusive Islamic Financial Planning (IIFP) approach rather than a one-size-fits-all approach towards mitigating poverty. Consideration towards operationalizing IIFP is essential to ascertain if such as approach can be applied in a socio-economic context such as that of Brunei.
