The dissertation examines how war economies prolong an existing conflict. This takes place as old and new economic actors attempt to maximize their benefits through new revenue streams while disinvesting in the political processes, thresholds notwithstanding. It identifies how both state and non-state actors, internal and external factions, influence and strengthen the war economy and pinpoints what factors contribute to the shift in societal conditions, focusing on the case of Syria. Economic actors (both internal and external) who benefit from the status quo continue to invest in economic activities (and disinvest in political processes) that sustain and prolong the conflict.
