(Florence, 27 November 2018) – How does economic life change amid widespread violence and state breakdown? How do wartime political economic arrangements create durable and remarkably resilient socio-economic mechanisms and networks? How do these arrangements help in adapting to high risks, regulating access to resources, markets and information, and are likely to endure and influence pathways out of conflict, as well as post-conflict recovery?
 
The Middle East Directions Programme (MEDirections) and the School of Transnational Governance (STG) of the European University Institute co-organise an Executive Training Seminar (ETS) on Economy in War-torn Countries: Pathways to Recovery and Reconstruction, that will take place in Florence (Italy) from 30th January to 1st February 2019.
This ETS focuses on the economic dimensions of civil wars. It is essential for policy-makers and practitioners involved in conflict resolution and reconstruction to understand civil war economy. Such an understanding adds an important dimension beyond the traditional focus on security that characterises the bulk of analyses and studies of civil wars.  
 
The ETS will address these key questions by drawing on practitioners’ experience and on the latest academic analysis and field-based research in four strategic areas:
  • Pathways from war economy
  • The business of violence and protection in war contexts
  • Lessons from past cases
  • The role of the private sector in recovery and reconstruction
The ETS employs various teaching techniques and activities that combine knowledge with skills acquisition. 
- Application is open from until 6 January 2019.
