Event description

Description

Now in its third year, Yemen's civil war shows no signs of stopping. In fact, it appears to be escalating, with Saudi Arabia's air war intensifying under the kingdom's new crown prince and Iranian involvement deepening in response. Meanwhile, civilian casualties continue to mount; since 2015, the United Nations has recorded more than 13,000 civilian casualties, and, in 2017, it estimated that some 3 million people have become internally displaced.

Can peace be restored in Yemen anytime soon? On November 27, hear a panel of experts, convened by KCL MENA Forum, consider the country's future and the war's wider implications.

Speakers include:

Baraa Shiban (@bshtwtr), Reprieve's Yemen coordinator and a participant in the National Dialogue Conference peace process of 2013-2014.

Nawal al-Maghafi (@bbcnawalmaghafi), a BBC correspondent who has reported on the war in Yemen from both sides of the Saudi-Yemeni border.

Helen Lackner, a research associate at SOAS and the author of 'Yemen in Crisis' (2017), copies of which will be sold at the event.

The panel discussion will be chaired by KCL War Studies student Will Reynolds.

The event is open to members of the public. Attendees must RSVP via Eventbrite and arrive early; seats that are vacant at 18.20 will be made available to those who did not manage to RSVP.
