Abstract

This paper argues that Western policy on sanctions should be part of a broader strategy for addressing the conflict in Syria. A key part of this should be transforming a conflict economy into a productive economy. It proposes that conditionality for lifting sanctions should be multi-level rather than top down, aimed at benefitting independent business, civil society, and ordinary people, who represent the main hope for a more peaceful Syria.
