Writing dissertation on Iran-Iraq war. Need some references/tips!Watch
What I would like to assess is to what extent specific economic indicators are affected, and to identify which they are and how the state of war interacts with them. (Essentially the key basis behind my entire dissertation is looking at the cost of war and it's implications - Iraq being my focus area. This would all be from an economist perspective).
I considered looking at the Gulf War instead as Iraq's foreign policy and trade were irrevocably changed after 1991, so indicators from that period are more conducive to long-term analysis. I'm still open to that. Any comments on the idea of the Iran-Iraq war's economic effects as too short term (from Iraq's POV) for rigorous analysis?
