The Yemen Catastrophe: Origins and Actors with Valentine M. Moghadam

Since 2015, the Saudi-led coalition bombing campaign to dislodge the
Houthis has created a humanitarian catastrophe for the Yemeni people and an
international headache for Saudi allies. Is an end in sight? The
presentation will provide a brief historical overview and a description of
the local, regional, and international actors involved and complicit.

and Illinois State University, and at the WIDER Institute in Helsinki and
UNESCO in Paris. Born in Iran and the author of many books and journal
articles, her geographic area of specialization is the Middle East and
North Africa. Prof. Moghadam is a board member of Massachusetts Peace
