The Islamic Governance (IG) Annual Symposium is part of the Institute of Policy Studies’ endeavour to continue the conversation on the concept of Islamic Governance. Maintaining this conversation on Islamic Governance is an important strategic focus for the IPS, in order to enhance our academic and intellectual proficiencies, and for creating a constructive intellectual space for academics, policy makers, policy implementers, researchers, students and, most essentially, the general public, to share their knowledge, opinions and experiences in a mass collaborative effort towards greater understanding of the concept’s application, relevance and challenges; and ultimately towards creating a profound awareness of the possibilities of Islam as a solution for societal organisation, for overcoming its challenges, and enhancing inter-civilisational relations. In the field of public policy, ‘Islamic Governance’ is a critical cog for realising the Islamic component of Brunei’s national philosophy of MIB, by offering a systematic, cohesive and holistic approach for mitigating the incongruences between national aspiration, policy formulation and its implementation.
