Abstract

This paper intends to establish conceptual foundations for analyzing the economic dimensions of a post-war-conflict. The Post-Conflict Economic Damage Simulator (PED-Simulator) attempts to estimate the heterogeneous macroeconomic effects of a military post-conflict. The model suggests nine different indicators: (i) the territorial dispute tension, ∆T; (ii) the territorial dispute strategy, Sn; (iii) territorial conflict dimension, Ak; (iv) territorial conflict losses, -π, (v) territorial conflict economic leaking, -Ψ, (vi) territorial conflict economic desgrowth, -δw; (vii) the post- territorial conflict economic damage, -Π; (viii) the post-conflict reconstruction plan, Rt; (ix) and the Mega-Disk Networks Analysis. The model investigates the territorial dispute between Israel and Palestinian (1949-2019). Hence, the same research paper is going to present a large number of simulations (mathematically and graphically) to evaluate the socio-economic-political cost for both sides in this older conflict from 1949 until those days. Finally, we are considering that for this specific armed conflict is necessary to evaluate its special characteristics and conditions. All of these dimensions are relevant for the rigorous analysis of complex and dynamic issues to study the Israeli-Palestinian conflict respectively.
