YEMEN: WAR, POLITICS AND HUMAN TRAGEDY

YEMEN: WAR, POLITICS AND HUMAN TRAGEDY

Saturday 10 March, 2018

International Conference

Yemenis arose in the 2011 Arab Spring in a revolt against the regime. Since 2014, the ongoing political strife has erupted into a full-blown humanitarian catastrophe, claiming hundreds of thousands of civilians due to armed violence, starvation, and the worst outbreak of cholera in history, affecting millions, including 600,000 children.

Through the commentary and analysis of experts and academics, The Cordoba Foundation attempts to shed light on one of the most tragic conflicts that has far-reaching implications beyond the Middle East.
