Rethinking Approaches to Peacebuilding in Yemen

Online event

7 July 2020

Crisis Group's major new report, "Rethinking Peace in Yemen", is based on a year and a half of extensive field research inside Yemen, and more than 100 in-person and telephone interviews with Yemeni actors, and regional and international stakeholders. The report maps out shifts in Yemen’s political geography over five years of conflict, recommends that policy makers rethink the requirements for peace and argues that a wider range of actors need to be included in UN-led talks. It calls for a more limited agreement to end the war focused on securing a ceasefire and the resumption of services, while avoiding too rapid a recentralisation of power in the capital.

Please join us for a virtual panel on the report's findings and recommendations, featuring:

Peter Salisbury, Senior Analyst for Yemen at Crisis Group
Nadwa Dawsari, Non-resident Fellow at the Middle East Institute
Amb. Barbara Bodine, Distinguished Professor at Georgetown University and Director of Institute for the Study of Diplomacy

April Longley Alley, Deputy Program Director, Middle East and North Africa at Crisis Group

Date: 7 July 2020
Time: 9:00-10:00 Washington/EDT, 15:00-16:00 Brussels/CEST, 16:00-17:00 Sanaa/AST

Audience questions will be taken. The post-event recording will be available here.
