This project built on Chatham House’s previous initiative on Yemen, called 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 work on Yemen: Reconstruction and Dialogue, was focused on the political, economic and social drivers and consequences of Yemen’s civil war.

The programme mapped 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.
