The conference shall address the following questions:
How can we explain the increasing outbreak of wars in the region in the aftermath of the “Arab Spring”?
What is novel in these wars compared to their precedents in the region?
How is it possible to exit these wars and to prevent a further spillover of violence?
What can we learn from former wars (e.g. the Lebanese Civil War) to end the recent ones?
The conference refers to a multidimensional analysis as it takes into consideration:
Comparing cases locally, regionally and globally,
Studying external interference and spillover effects
Developing scenarios for conflict resolution.
