The Geopolitics of Yemen’s Civil War: Policy Report Launch Event

Join the Newlines Institute as we launch our latest Policy Report by Giorgio Cafiero and Dr. Theodore Karasik.

Newlines Institute’s latest policy report provides an analysis of the events in Yemen’s civil war until Dec. 8, 2019.

In their report, The Geopolitics of Yemen’s Civil War, Theodore Karasik and Giorgio Cafiero gather evidence to explain how and why Yemen’s immediate future is clouded by multiple variables within the country, the agendas of various regional powers, and the desires of the international community.

Abdulwahab Alkebsi will moderate the discussion with the authors and the audience question and answer period.
