What will be discussed?
This lecture reflects on the origins of a conflict in Yemen, a long running tragedy that has been forgotten in the agenda of international affairs.
Extending back at least 30 years, those factors that caused the violence in Yemen are rarely discussed and analyzed.
As a short-lived ”ceasefire” came to an end, people became exposed to life threatening conditions once more.
This lecture seeks to correct the analytical neglect that obscures this ongoing humanitarian disaster and offer suggestions as to what we may expect in the next months ahead.
