Zaki Mehchy, a co-founder and researcher of the Syrian Center for Policy Research, will present the latest findings on the socioeconomic impact of the conflict in Syria including its impact on GDP, capital stock, fiscal and monitory dynamics, employment, poverty, education, health, human development index, and social capital.
He will highlight the dramatic changes in the current institutions dynamics (rules of the game) that have witnessed the emergence of conflict-related actors in addition to change in the role of previous actors. Presented within the framework of justice and taken into account differences across Syrian regions, Zaki Mehchy will also identify the enormous challenges of “reconstruction process”.
