The War in Yemen: Implications for America and the World
The war in Yemen is defined by the U.N. as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, but remains chronically underreported. The war involves almost 10 countries, including the U.S., and has recently come into the limelight after Jamal Khashoggi's murder. Once celebrated as a success story of the Arab Spring, almost eighty percent of the country now needs some form of humanitarian aid. This panel, through analysts at the Yemen Peace Project and Oxfam will trace the geopolitical significance of the war, and what it teaches us about the future of the Middle East.
