Summit on Stimulating Economic Growth in Conflict Zones and Disaster Areas Begins Today

The nation's foremost experts on entrepreneurship, post-conflict economic development, armed conflict and disaster relief will convene today to discuss ways to achieve sustainable economic development in post-conflict and post-catastrophe areas


KANSAS CITY, MO -- (Marketwire) -- 05/25/10 -- The nation's foremost experts on entrepreneurship, post-conflict economic development, armed conflict and disaster relief will convene today to discuss ways to achieve sustainable economic development in post-conflict and post-catastrophe areas. The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Command and General Staff College Foundation (CGSC Foundation) are hosting a Summit on Entrepreneurship and Expeditionary Economics from Tuesday, May 25 to Thursday, May 27, 2010 at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center in Kansas City, Mo.

""In bringing military leaders, foreign policy experts, historians and world-class economists together, we hope to determine how to create the conditions most conducive to long-term economic growth during and after conflicts and natural catastrophes,"" said Carl Schramm, president and CEO, Kauffman Foundation. ""Among the key hypotheses to be explored this week is the idea that economic growth is the key to sustained peace and stability and, in turn, that the formation of high-growth firms and a spirit of entrepreneurship are essential to building expanding economies.""

Senior military and civilian policymakers and academics will discuss how economic development doctrine can be translated into concrete action in war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan and disaster-stricken countries such as Haiti.

The conference will explore themes outlined in Schramm's article in the May/June issue of Foreign Affairs, ""Expeditionary Economics: Spurring Growth After Conflicts and Disasters.""

The conference will feature keynote addresses by Schramm, Harvard University Professor Niall Ferguson and Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass. There will be panel discussions on post-conflict planning and execution in past, current and future wars, and panelists will include the following participants:

""The long term success of military engagements depends largely on the creation of a thriving economic base,"" said Col. (Ret.) Robert Ulin, CEO, CGSC Foundation. ""We're talking about encouraging local entrepreneurs and staffing development projects with local labor instead of western contractors -- a smarter 'messy' capitalism approach instead of the centrally planned, heavily managed model.""
