Yemen: fragmentation, mediation and humanitarian crisis18 May 2023. From 18:30 | Conference | Spanish | IEMed
After eight years of war and because of the proliferation of autonomous or semi-autonomous political and/or military forces, Yemen has suffered significant territorial, political-social and even economic fragmentation. The appearance of new nucleus of effective power with their own agendas and goals has meant a multiplication of the actors involved in the conflict, making its resolution enormously complex. In this scenario, it is very important to analyze these different de facto groups of power and their narrative to approach the process of seeking an eventual peace. All this without losing sight of the consequences of the humanitarian emergency and the most immediate needs of the country.
