Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Transitional Justice in Wartime Yemen

Transitional Justice in Wartime Yemen

December 21, 2022 | 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm | Middle East Program

About the Event

During and after the 2011 uprising in Yemen, actors across civil society pushed longstanding and unmet demands for justice to the forefront. As Yemen’s internationally-brokered transitional process gave way to war, these demands persisted, even as new grievances quickly emerged. In this event, Stacey Philbrick Yadav, a leading expert on Yemeni politics and author of Yemen in the Shadow of Transition: Pursuing Justice Amid War (Oxford University Press, 2022) will discuss the work that civil actors are undertaking now to ensure that post-conflict institutions can substantively respond to the demands of Yemeni society. Drawing on nearly two decades of research, including recent collaborative research with Yemeni-led research and advocacy organizations, Yadav considers the road ahead for Yemeni civil society and elites. This discussion will be moderated by FPRI's Director of Research, James Ryan.
