International Workshop Report on Cost of Conflict in the Middle East
This report features the summary of a workshop held in March 2008 in Antalya, Turkey, co-hosted by the Turkish and Swiss departments of foreign affairs. It examines the economic and human costs of the conflict in the Middle East and details how the regional wars have obstructed the evolution of a strong consuming class. The report states that a direct economic cost of conflict in the Middle East is the limited industrial production capability and marginal market demand in several of the region’s countries.
