"Conflict and Reconstruction In Yemen"

To make sense of the current landscape of conflict and reconstruction in Yemen requires a that we reckon honestly with its antecedents. This lecture will review several prominent (but mistaken) ways of understanding sources of conflict in Yemen, and identify central factors that contributed to the breakdown of its internationally-brokered transitional framework (2012-15). After exploring key differences and similarities between UN and regional track mediation efforts, the talk will map existing opportunities for (and barriers to) an inclusive and equitable peace, and consider the like implications of the current escalation in US military engagement for achieving these ends.
