While conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region are still ongoing, stabilisation and reconstruction remain top priorities on the international and regional agenda. Years of war have created new political and economic dynamics in Syria, Libya and Iraq, which make traditional approaches to these challenges difficult and problematic. How will the new realities on the ground influence the EU and international community’s willingness and capacity to respond? […]
The repercussions of continued conflicts need to be analysed closely. Stabilisation and reconstruction remain a priority for many of the actors - whether local, regional or international - that have over time been involved in these conflicts.
Professor Luigi Narbone, Director of the EUI Middle East Directions Programme, and Professor Steven Heydemann of Smith College will debate these issues with a panel of experts. This event draws insights from the eBook 'Fractured stability: war economies and reconstruction in the MENA', which is available to download free at https://cadmus.eui.eu/handle/1814/64127 (short link http://bit.ly/32pBgFz). The eBook explores alternative approaches to reconstruction given the shortcomings of contemporary approaches to post-conflict reconstruction, and offers useful insights and recommendations to policy-makers.
