About the Conference
The Center for Conflict and Humanitarian Studies (CHS) in partnership with the Arab Center Washington DC (ACW), and DeepRoot Consulting are organizing a two-day online academic conference on February 14-15, 2022.
This symposium comes at a time of increased global concern for the future of Yemen, as diplomatic processes have failed to deliver peace or much humanitarian relief since the outbreak of the war there in 2014. As such, this is a critical time to examine the current political, economic, humanitarian, and security situation in the country and sketch out a vision for a comprehensive and sustainable peace for all Yemenis.
Interpretation in Arabic and English will be available during the conference, and the sessions will be livestreamed on the websites and social media platforms of all three organizing partners. Following the conference, the papers presented will be peer-reviewed and published into a book in both Arabic and English.
In addition to Zoom, the webinar will be available on our website
