What future for stabilisation and reconstruction in the MENA Region?

  Add to Calendar 2020-01-21 13:00 2020-01-21 15:00 Europe/Paris What future for stabilisation and reconstruction in the MENA Region?

The Middle East Directions Programme’s Director Luigi Narbone (EUI) and Professor Steven Heydemann (Smith College) will debate with a panel of experts on the stabilisation and reconstruction of war-torn countries in the MENA region. In addition to the well-known security dimension, years of military strife and state collapse have created new political, economic political economy and governance realities on the ground that are questioning the conceptualization itself of post-conflict ‘stabilisation’ and ‘reconstruction’ notions. At the core of the discourse, the debate will also focus on how external actors that are involved in the early recovery, peace-building and reconstruction should design their interventions upon short-term macroeconomic policies, by investing on the human capital development and adopting a comprehensive policy to go beyond the material dimension of reconstruction. The event draws insights from the eBook Fractured stability: war economies and reconstruction in the MENA, that is available for free download.

 

Speakers: Prof Luigi Narbone, MEDirections, European University Institute in Florence, Italy; Prof Steven Heydemann, Smith College, Massachusetts United Sstates; Mr Brando Benifei MEP

Discussants: Branislav Stanicek, Policy Analyst, External Policies Unit, DG EPRS; Perla Srour-Gandon, Administrator, Foreign Affairs Committee

Moderator: Dr Joanna Apap, Strategy and Coordination Unit, DG EPRS

Kindly note that this event takes place at the European Parliament (Brussels). Registration and more information.
