Event description
This research-policy exchange aims to initiate a structured exchange about new responses to post-conflict reconstruction in the MENA region.

About this Event

The exchange aims to explore the possibilities and constraints of accountability and rules-based approaches as well as investment strategies. It builds on the insight that many international aid providers as well as local and multi-national corporations are ill-prepared to engage in reconstruction in the current situation characterised by a state of no-war-no-peace as well as autocratic governance resilience and restoration. The exchange also aims to rethink norms and practice that have shaped the provision of private investment and international aid for post-conflict reconstruction over the last two decades.

The research-policy exchange follows on an academic conference about the dynamics of current and future post-conflict-reconstruction in the MENA region and their implications for private investors and international aid providers. The research-policy exchange allows MENA-focused policy-makers in international, non-governmental organizations and business to meet about 20 representatives from academia (see list enclosed) to exchange views on the coming challenge of post-conflict reconstruction in the MENA.

The research-policy exchange is convened by the Middle East Directions Programme of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute (EUI), the Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP) of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform.
