Summary/Abstract: During the centuries of conventional banking practice, a number of credit risk mitigation techniques and instruments have been developed and the process of their evolution, due to constant changes in the banking business, is continuing. Islamic banks, however, have not yet managed to develop authentic, Shariah acceptable credit risk management techniques to the extent sufficient to meet their needs. Therefore, they are often forced to use conventional techniques, whose consistent application in Islamic banking, due to the Shariah non-compliance of certain techniques or the way in which they are implemented in conventional banking, is quite limited. In this paper, we will analyze the conventional credit risk management and mitigation techniques and their applicability in Islamic banking, the credit risk management practices in Islamic banks, the achieved results and factors that influence the emergence and intensity of credit risk in Islamic banking.
