Global Ethics Weekly: A "Carefully Optimistic" Update on Yemen, with Waleed Alhariri

December 20, 2018

Waleed Alhariri, U.S. director of the Sana'a Center for Strategic Studies, discusses major developments in the Yemen conflict, which remains the world's worst humanitarian crisis. With renewed momentum at the UN and in U.S. Congress, an increased international focus on the war after the Jamal Khashoggi murder, and a fragile ceasefire in Hudaydah, Yemen's biggest port, Alhariri is "carefully optimistic" that conditions could improve in the coming months. 

Alahiri previously spoke about the Yemen conflict in an August Global Ethics Weekly and a June 2017 Carnegie New Leaders Podcast. Plus, every month, he helps to write the Sana'a Center's Yemen at the UN report and this discussion focuses on some of the issues featured in the November issue.
