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.
