Yemen Studies Program

The Yemen Studies Program (previously Unit) was established in 2021. It is academically oriented, focusing on promoting interdisciplinary, in-depth, and critical research on Yemen’s politics, society, art, culture, and history. The Program also seeks to promote the understanding of peacebuilding approaches in a post-war Yemen and contribute to advancing strong strategies to achieve long-lasting peace, through dialogue and critical conversations between peacebuilding and conflict-resolution experts, Yemeni civil society actors and experts, as well as organizations involved in Yemen.
