This event took place as side event as part of the 2022 IMF/WBG spring meeting Civil Society Policy Forum, entitled: “Conflict, Economic Crisis, and Covid-19 Nexus: Recovery Perspectives in the Middle East.”
Session abstract: The Syrian Center for Policy Research (SCPR) moderated a discussion that demonstrates the impact of COVID-19 related policies and interventions adopted by local and international actors on conflict and crises dynamics in the Middle East. Specifically, the session diagnosed the impact on inequality, poverty, conflict economies and human security. The session also aimed to critically assess the potential IMF/WB interventions for post COVID-19 recovery in such contexts, and suggests a civil society perspective for a recovery that counters conflict and crises’ foundations.
The session took place: April 6, 2022 | 8.00 – 9.30 am (D.C. time) in Washington.
