SamenvattingThis thesis investigates the impact of the development of Islamic banking on the overall banking sector development as well as on the GDP growth. A differences-in-differences model is designed to assess the hypotheses, being estimated by the fixed-effects estimation technique with heteroskedasticity- and autocorrelation-robust clustered standard errors. Using a sample of 49 countries during the period 2007{2014, from which 22 countries have Islamic banking established, this thesis reports a negative relationship between the penetration level of Islamic banks in the banking sector and the development of this banking sector. Further, it finds no significant effect on the GDP growth.
