In the second round of the SALAM project, participants each submitted 2,000-word essays on the following subject:
On Friday September 15, 2023, participants met for an online round-table debate, under the guidance of SALAM expert associates. The debate was divided into two sections headed by the following questions:
- “What are the policy opportunity costs of prioritizing arms manufacturing and trade (at the domestic and regional levels)?”.
- “What are the economic opportunity costs of new trends in the MENA region prioritizing investment in arms production and the arms trade?”.
Essays will be published from mid-October to November 2023.
A synthesis paper will follow at the end of November.
