The Middle East Directions Programme offers an executive training seminar on the pathways to recovery and reconstruction in war-torn countries. The training focuses on the economic dimensions of civil war and the pathways out of conflict. It explores how economic life changes amid widespread violence and state breakdown and how wartime political-economic arrangements create durable and remarkably resilient socio-economic mechanisms and networks. These arrangements help in mitigating the high risks associated with civil wars, regulating access to resources, markets and information, and are likely to endure and influence pathways out of conflict as well as post-conflict recovery.

Understanding civil war economy is essential for policy-makers and practitioners involved in conflict resolution and reconstruction, adding an important dimension beyond the traditional focus on security that characterises the bulk of analyses and studies of civil wars.

The training’s overarching objective is to allow participants to foster creative thinking towards fresh approaches to economic recovery and reconstruction in war-torn countries enabling participants to challenge conventional wisdoms. In pursuit of these goals, the executive training will bring together academics and policymakers, practitioners and political and social activists with firsthand experience. It will combine an interdisciplinary approach that borrows from political economy, political science, sociology and international relations, with interactive scenario-building to encourage creative thinking. The training examines cases from the MENA i.e. Iraq, Syria and Libya, but also draws on experience from historical cases of civil conflict and post-conflict recovery and reconstruction like Lebanon and Sri Lanka.

This ETS is by invitation only. Any EUI members interested in participating should write to [email protected]
