Chatham House’s Middle East and North Africa Programme has been a leading centre of research and dialogue on Yemen since the formation of its Yemen Forum, which ran from 2010 to 2013, culminating in the publication of the ground-breaking report Yemen: Corruption, Capital Flight and Global Drivers of Conflict.

The current phase of work on Yemen, reconstruction and dialogue, is focused on the political, economic and social drivers and consequences of Yemen’s civil war. Building on the 2014 report Yemen: Stemming the Rise of a Chaos State, this programme involves mapping key local and regional stakeholders in Yemen's conflict, examining prospects for peace, and presenting a long-term approach for ending the crisis, state-building and economic reconstruction.
