About The Wednesday Seminars 
in the Islamic Economics Institute

A Brief Account of the Wednesday Seminar

Among the deeply-rooted traditions of the Institute is the Wednesday Seminar, which takes place on Wednesday every week. It lasts for one and a half hour, where half of this period is allocated for presenting the subject of the Seminar, the other half for discussions and interventions. The Seminar could be conducted internally at the level of staff researchers of the Institute, or at the external level, where teaching staff from the College of Economics, or other colleges, such as the College of Arts, Department of Islamic Studies and Department of Sociology are invited to participate. The Seminar at the external level could also be attended by teaching staff of other Saudi universities or institutions.

Among the benefits of this Seminar is that it is held weekly for academic and not for administrative purposes. This strengthens the relationship among the participants, storms their brains and stimulates them to commence an academic research, follow up on an already existing one, search for a solution for one of the problems associated with such research or take stock of, present and evaluate new literature on the subject of the Seminar.

The subjects dealt with in the Seminar are limited to issues associated with Islamic Economics and Fiqh-ul-Mu’amalat (Jurisprudence of Islamic Financial Transactions). The issues raised vary with the participating departments, such as the Department of Economics, Department of Management, Accountancy Department, Systems Department, Islamic Studies Department, Sociology Department, etc.
