The 2017 Algerian Paper of the Year Awards

Producing scientific work that pushes the boundaries of science is an intensive process that requires rigorous planning, hard work, commitment and creativity as well as a scientific culture and infrastructure that support and maintain these efforts. Recognising and celebrating contributions that advance scientific knowledge are therefore essential to nurturing and maintaining successful research environments. To this end, anasr.org has launched the Algerian Paper of the Year Awards, an annual award to recognise and celebrate scientific publications produced from Algerian universities and research centres. This year, the awards are dedicated to the following research disciplines: Read More

Interview | Dr Yasmine Amhis laureate of the Grand Prix Jacques Herbrand in Physics

Inspire Magazine speaks to Dr Yasmine Amhis, researcher at the Linear Accelerator Laboratory (LAL) in Orsay, a joint unit of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics (IN2P3) and the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) and the University of Paris-Sud. In November 2016, Dr Amhis received the  Grand Prix Jacques Herbrand in Physics awarded by the French Academy of Science for her contribution to the LHCb experiment at CERN with respect to the physics of heavy quarks. This area is promising for the study of deviations from the standard model and also for understanding the mechanism responsible for the violation of matter-antimatter symmetry.

Feature | Issues and Challenges in Introducing Islamic Insurance (Takaful) Into the Algerian Financial Market: Lessons from Malaysia

The Islamic insurance sector or Takaful has seen remarkable global growth in many major markets, especially in Muslim dominated countries. However, the development of Islamic finance, particularly Takaful in Algeria appears to have lagged behind. Although there are two Islamic banks operating in Algeria, Takaful is yet to be introduced into the Algerian financial market. We ran a study to investigate the perspective of Algerian experts in Islamic finance and takaful on the issues and challenges of introducing Islamic insurance into the Algerian financial market to address the following questions: What are the benefits of introducing Islamic insurance into the Algerian financial market? What challenges might Algeria face with the introduction of Islamic insurance? And how can the Algerian financial market adopt the Malaysian Islamic insurance framework? Read More
