War and Peace in Yemen

This public interview was conducted by Dr. Joshua Landis, the director of the Center of Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma.

In this interview, we discuss the possibility of peace in Yemen or its lack thereof.  The interview provides an idea about the fragile nature of the political revolutionary process since 2011, which has fractured state power through military division, sectarian unrest, tribal conflict, regional disunity, and partisan polarization. It answers questions like: Who are the Yemeni warring parties? How are the regional and international power players implicated in the conflict? What is the prospect of peace amidst serious concerns of a humanitarian crisis?
