Why is it important?

It is contributing to the literature of conversion to Islamic banking as it is among the first studies that applied change theories. These findings may benefit Central Bank of Libya as well as other Islamic banks’ managers elsewhere in implementing the conversion process smoothly and avoiding resistance to change.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. The paper was originally reviewed, presented to conference and improvised to reflect scientific as well as socio-economic impact on the society for change.
