In Yemen, Seeking Medical Care Means Risking One's Life
Description: Residents in the city of Taiz must risk their lives to seek medical care. The conflict, which has been active since March 2015, has included the bombing of hospitals, gunfire directed at ambulances, and the harassment of health workers. Today, there are no public hospitals in Taiz city or its surroundings that are fully open and functioning. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) works on both sides of the front lines in Taiz, running a trauma center for war-wounded and a mother and child hospital in the Al-Houban neighborhood. MSF also supports departments in four hospitals inside the city center, two of them for emergency treatment of the wounded and the others supporting maternal and pediatric health care.

The future of Yemen
Description: The future of Yemen Global, regional and national dimensions Wednesday 23 November 2016, 14.00–16.00 DIIS ∙ Danish Institute for International Studies Auditorium Gl. Kalkbrænderi Vej 51A 2100 Copenhagen Background In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition launched a military operation in Yemen. The aim was to reinstate the internationally recognized president Hadi, who fled Yemen as Houthi insurgents took control over large parts of the country, including the capital Sana’a. More than 19 months later, the Saudi-led military operation has failed to achieve its ultimate aim of reinstating president Hadi, while the Yemeni state has crumpled and internal cleavages deepened. Despite several rounds of peace talks between the Houthis and their allies on the one side and the internationally recognized president Hadi supported by Saudi Arabia on the other, the UN Special Envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed has been unable to broker a deal. Consequently, the conflict continues to have detrimental consequences for the Yemeni population. Yemen has become a humanitarian catastrophe as 80% of the population is in need of some form of humanitarian assistance and millions are severely malnourished. The speakers will provide an overview of the current conflict and the role of the main actors, including Iran and Saudi Arabia. This also includes exploring the internal dimensions of the conflict such as the saliency of sectarian and regional cleavages. Moreover, the speakers will highlight how fears of state failure and the development of Yemen into a safe haven for terrorists have been used to legitimize the Saudi-led intervention. Thus, through this seminar we gain insight into the main drivers of the ongoing conflict and the future prospects of the Yemeni state. Speakers Peter Salisbury, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House Lars Erslev Andersen, Senior Researcher, DIIS Maria-Louise Clausen, Postdoc, DIIS
