YEMEN: WAR, POLITICS AND HUMAN TRAGEDY

10am – 4pm, Saturday 10th March, Central London

Yemenis arose in the 2011 Arab Spring in a revolt against the regime. Since 2014, the on-going political strife has erupted into a full-blown humanitarian catastrophe, claiming hundreds of thousands of civilians due to armed violence, starvation, and the worst outbreak of cholera in history, affecting millions, including 600,000 children.

Through the commentary and analysis of experts and academics, The Cordoba Foundation attempts to shed light on one of the most tragic conflicts that has far-reaching implications beyond the Middle East.

Speakers include:

H.E. Abdulrahman Al-Hamdi – Former Yemen ambassador to the Czech Republic; former member of the Yemeni Parliament.

Prof Staffan Wolff – Political scientist, specialising in international security, Birmingham University.

Bill Law – Award-winning journalist

Toby Cadman – Barrister, International law specialist.
