While Yemen’s recently concluded National Dialogue process was praised as one of the most inclusive in the Middle East, Yemenis are now tasked with implementing its outcomes. They must also agree on a new constitution and address the country’s humanitarian, security and development challenges.

This roundtable will bring together members of the Yemen Forum network with a delegation of Yemeni government and civil society representatives organized by the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Rights Project to discuss the outcomes of the National Dialogue. These include implications of the proposed federal structure, the constitutional drafting process and the establishment of an independent Human Rights Commission.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
