CIBIF Summerschool 2016: Sustainable banking and finance

23 March 2016

CIBIF organizes from August 22nd to August 26th a summerschool on sustainable banking and finance. The summer school aims to highlight the academic research into the reinforcement of the societal role of banks, which is known as sustainable banking and finance. During the summer school we will discuss finance modes and sustainability, as well as the history of sustainable banking and finance. We will zoom in on the practice of sustainable banking institutions, both by addressing the progress in academic research as well as by analyzing case studies. Next to the role of financial institution, we will look at sustainable finance from a corporate as well as an investor’s perspective. Finance modes may be effected by strong cultural and religious values. As a specific example, we will discuss the research and progress in Islamic banking.
