Virtual meeting, streamed on YouTube

This is not a B-YS event, but will be of interest to members.

The discussion, moderated by Shadi Qubati, will be live-streamed via the Cambridge Union's YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/cambridgeunionsoc1815/livestream

The aim of this discussion is to be more future-oriented and move a step beyond the panels that we have seen over the past few months looking at the ABC’s of the Yemen conflict and the main actors on the ground.

As it enters its sixth year, the end of this ‘forgotten war’ does not seem to be in sight. Tensions continue to rise between the internationally recognised government and the Houthi militias, and have been further complicated by the emergence of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) since 2017. With all these growing developments and the recent suspension of talks between the legitimate government and the STC, Yemenis seem more uncertain than ever about the future shape of their country.              

Is secession a real possibility?              

Or might Yemen move in an entirely different direction?
