2016 CONFERENCE ON ISLAM IN NIGERIA (COIN)

 ISLAMIC WELFARE FOUNDATION In collaboration with INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ISLAMIC THOUGHT, BAYERO UNIVERSITY, KANO, NIGERIA Announces her 2016 CONFERENCE ON ISLAM IN NIGERIA (COIN)

Call for Papers

The world has come to a consensus that corruption is the major bane of Nigeria's progress. It has pushed Nigeria to the precipice and the country will go under unless the scourge is arrested. While there is a broad agreement both locally and internationally that there is need to fight corruption, there is little agreement on how the fight should proceed. This lack of agreement on how to fight corruption in Nigeria results from a poor understanding of corruption as a phenomenon which in turn obscures its real causes and confuses how it can be dealt with.

The consequences facing Nigeria if corruption is not tackled at this point in time are indeed very dire. This is why the Islamic Welfare Foundation, in collaboration with the International Institute of Islamic Thought, is devoting the 2016 edition of her annual Conference on Islam in Nigeria to unraveling the issue of corruption in Nigeria. The conference is intended to generate fresh insights that will improve understanding of the phenomenon and also facilitate the fashioning of effective solutions to the problem especially within the dictates of Islam. In consonance with our philosophy that religion, especially Islam, has a place in public life, the conference will discuss the issue of corruption in Nigeria from the Islamic perspective.
