January 11th, 2018
By Abdelghani ECHCHABI and Dhekra AZOUZI
The objective of this study is to highlight the current industry and research state of Islamic finance in North Africa, a region that has been late in applying Islamic finance. The study focuses on document analysis, in the form of library research (literature review). The reviewed literature revealed that a considerable amount of studies on Islamic finance have been conducted in the North African setting. However, majority of these studies were conducted in the Tunisian context compared to the remaining countries. Furthermore, there seems to be no real connectivity and continuity among these studies.
