About the Project

Project term: April, 2013–March, 2016

This project intends to clarify the contemporary meaning and significance of economic activities by Shari’ah compliant industries and Muslims’ economic behaviors such as production, distribution, and consumption of products and services provided by these industries, through multidisciplinary research and analysis by the researchers who study Islamic countries.
This project deals with 1) macro-level economic activities based on Islam, that is, Shari’ah compliant industries like Islamic finance, Halal food and cosmetics industry, fashion industry (abaya, hijab, jilbab, tudung, etc), pilgrimage (hajj, umrah, ziyarah) and tourism (Muslim-friendly hotel), and 2) micro-level economic behaviors based on Islam, that is, Muslims’ production, distribution, and consumption affected by Shari’ah, especially five pillars and six articles of faith. The study region of this project includes to not only Middle East, North Africa, South, Southeast and Central Asia, but also Europe, North and South America. The joint research of researchers in this project, whose academic backgrounds are cultural anthropology, area studies, and economics, intends to investigate economic activities and behaviors based on Islam in/around Muslim world.
