Issues of Governance, Transparency and Accountability of Sovereign Wealth Funds in Muslim Countries
What is it about?
This paper aims to highlight the issues of governance, transparency and accountability with a specific focus on SWFs sponsored by the members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), or Muslim countries in short. It discusses the gaps arising in the governance, transparency and accountability of SWFs in Muslim Countries (SWF-MC) and proposes some recommendations to improve their practices with a view to enhance their impact on social and economic developments in Muslim countries.
Why is it important?
The topic of SWFs, being discussed particularly from the perspective of Muslim countries, is a new approach. It is deemed vital given the current significance of SWFs in the economic development of Muslim countries. This sets the basis for undertaking this research which focuses on the prevalence of SWFs only in Muslim countries.
