Islam & Liberty Network (ILN) is a global platform of researchers and academics building knowledge and expertise on the Islamic notions of economic, political and religious liberties. Its flagship event is an international annual conference which brings together academics and researchers to present and discuss papers on the current discourse on Islam, society and the world at large under the over-arching theme of Islam and liberty. The conference also helps to build the capacity of scholars and researchers working on Islam.

The conference organisers believe that a reasoned and authentic discussion on the foundations of open markets in an Islamic context will help to build a better understanding of economic liberty amongst the Muslim intelligentsia. It will thereby influence the public at large, thus contributing towards peace and prosperity in different parts of the world where Muslim believers get inspiration from Islam to define their worldview. This is an open call to researchers, academics and experts to send their abstract for consideration in the ILN 6th International Conference “Building an Islamic Case for Open Markets” using following guidelines.
