Governance-based integrity and hisbah are now facing two challenges. The first challenge, there are people who do not understand and aware of the importance of integrity and hisbah in governance. Therefore, the effort to overcome this challenge is to give them the understanding and awareness of these matters. The second challenge, there is a group that understands and knows the importance of integrity in hisbah. However, these groups are only rhetorically aware, but not in the aspect of implementation. This has resulted in many of the civil and private employees involved in integrity and hisbah issues. To overcome this challenge, of course, it must involve self-esteem, the strengthening of religious knowledge as well as the affirmation of national law.
This conference tries to find an answer to this question. It aims to bring together various researchers, academicians, scholars, practitioners and others who have interest in the field of Integrity and Hisbah regardless from within Malaysia or from other countries. This is a conference that hopes to be able to blend new, innovative and practical minds, unlike the common stereotype, reiterative and rhetorical ones. So are the papers and discussions expected for this conference.
