FINEX Survey

We want to learn from you!

Islamic banking is a growing sector globally, but there is little knowledge about how Muslims in the Nordic countries relate to questions of Islamic finance and to the relationship between religion and economy. We want to know more about this.

We seek participants for a survey

We want to get in touch with Muslim men and women who are over 20 years and who live in Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Finland.

The survey is available in Arabic, Bosnian, Danish, English, Finish, Norwegian, Somali, Swedish, Turkish and Urdu. You can choose your preferred language in the dropdown menu on the top of each page in the survey.

What does it mean to participate?

It will take you around 8-10 minutes to fill out the online questionnaire. Participation is voluntary and anonymous.

What will happen to the data?

The data that we collect with our questionnaire will be analyzed by the researchers in the project. We will write scientific articles and present our research to the general public. We will not use our research to promote particular policy agendas, but we hope that the knowledge we create will help governments and other actors to make decisions. We want to keep the data for future research about religion and the economy.

The research project

The research project Financial exclusion, Islamic finance and housing in the Nordic countries (FINEX)investigates how Muslims use financial services and what they think about issues related to economics, religion and housing. 

The FINEX-project is led by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and is carried out in collaboration with researchers and Muslim communities the Nordic countries.

The project is carried out independent of any government authority. PRIO is responsible for the project and it is funded by a grant from the Research Council of Norway.
