Crisis in Yemen: The Forgotten War
As one of the world’s deadliest yet least reported conflicts escalates into its second year, we will be bringing together a panel of experts to discuss the current situation in Yemen.
We will map out the players involved, discuss the toll of the conflict on one of the poorest countries in the Middle East, as well as the potential for reconciliation and a lasting peace process. We will discuss the alleged complicity of Western powers – the UK, the US and France – by way of billion-dollar arms deals to the Saudi-led coalition, as well as exploring the disproportionate lack of media coverage.
