Now entering its third year, the civil war in Yemen has exacted a horrific toll on civilians and enabled the expansion of al-Qaeda. Intervention by the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led Gulf coalition and by Iran has only sharpened the country’s fault-lines and worsened its humanitarian crisis. Outside efforts at mediation have fallen short. Where is Yemen's war heading and what can local, regional and international actors do to end it?
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is hosting a discussion of options for ending Yemen’s war with Carnegie’s Farea Al-Muslimi, Yemeni analyst Nadwa al-Dawsari, and former U.S. Ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein. Carnegie’s Frederic Wehrey will moderate.
Date: September 8, 2017
When: 10:00 - 11:30 AM
Where: Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
