SCPR participation in the “After Conflict?” Conference in Vienna, held by the Central European University

Vienna, March 2024 – The Syrian Center for Policy Research (SCPR) participated in a conference titled “After Conflict? Spoils of War and the emergent international disorder in the Arab World” held at the Central European University in Vienna on March 6-7, 2024. This conference, organised by the Center for Religious Studies and Department of History at the Central European University with the support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, aimed to delve into the complexities arising from military conflicts in the Arab region, particularly focusing on Syria and Iraq.

This meeting sought to profile the dynamic and fragile conditions that emerged from military and para-military confrontations in Syria, Iraq, and beyond. Following the recent volatility in the region and beyond, the meeting addressed the conditions and prospects for the Arab world, with a particular focus on the Mashreq region.

In this context, the Syrian Center for Policy Research organized a dialogue session entitled “Socioeconomic Solidarities in Times of Protracted Conflict in Syria.” The session, which was moderated by Klaudia Weiser with the participation of Ramia Ismail and Rabie Nasser, addressed the pressing economic and social challenges facing Syria after more than 13 years of conflict. The focus was on the conflict economies and social deterioration that Syria is experiencing. Preliminary results of participatory field research in Syria were also presented, exploring the forms and dynamics of social solidarity and its role in enhancing cohesion amidst turmoil.

The conference provided a platform for in-depth discussions and critical analysis of the challenges facing the Arab world post-conflict, highlighting the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and evidence-based policy-making to achieve sustainable development and peace in the region.
