As with other Arab Spring countries, Yemen’s democratic aspirations have long disappeared. Since 2014, the country has suffered from a disastrous civil conflict that evolved into a proxy war between rival regional powers. Now Yemen is faced with failing institutions and a full-fledged humanitarian crisis.

Regional and international efforts to address the plight of Yemenis and establish lasting peace have not yet come to fruition. While the recent Chinese-mediated rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Iran sparked hope for a negotiated end to the war, Yemenis have yet to see any meaningful peace talks. 

Please join the Carnegie Middle East program for a conversation on Yemen’s future with Congressman Ro Khanna and Amat Alsoswa.
