Macroeconomic Instability, Financial Repression and Islamic Banking in Sudan
This article examines the practice, problems and potential of Islamic banking inSudan. The study demonstrates an unprecedented decline in both financial and real variables. It argues that the activities of Islamic banks in the country are constrained by the macroeconomic environment in general and repressive monetary and credit policy in particular. The paper concludes that when such constraints are removed only then the Islamic banking system may make a meaningful contribution to financial and economic growth in Sudan.
