Understanding the Crisis in yemen
Tuesday, June 14 at 7:00 pm EDT
The war in Yemen, now entering its eighth year, has broken the country and created one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. What happened, what is happening now, and what can be done about it? Join us for a talk with Yemen expert Dr. Gregory Johnsen, introduced by U.S. Representative Peter Meijer (Michigan’s 3rd district) who is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Dr. Gregory Johnsen is the author of The Last Refuge: Yemen, al-Qaeda, and America’s War in Arabia and a former member of the UN Security Council’s Panel of Experts on Yemen. In addition to being the editor of the Yemen Review, Dr. Johnsen is a fellow at both the Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings
Institution and the Sanaa Center for Strategic Studies.
