International Conference on Islam, Science and Sustainable Development: Maqasid al-Shari'ah and Humanity's Well Being
(IAIS Malaysia, 6-7 October 2015)
Approaching Sustainable Development from the perspective of Islamic philosophy and Maqasid al-Shari’ah remains relatively unexplored. Realising the high potential of Islamic philosophy to further contribute to this field, the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies (IAIS) Malaysia, and along with its co-organisers, the Global Movement of Moderates (GMM), University of Malaya, and Monash University, jointly organised a two-day international conference entitled Islam, Science and Sustainable Development: Maqasid al-Shari’ah and Humanity’s Well Being. The opening speech was delivered by YB Senator Dato’ Dr. Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki, with other eminent speakers including Prof. Mohammad Hashim Kamali, Prof. Datin Azizan Baharuddin, Prof. Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak and Prof. Mohamed Aslam Haneef.
