Towards a Feasible Peace in Yemen ? Prospects for the Stockholm Agreement

In partnership with The International League for Peace and Human Rights (ILPHR) – Geneva.

The armed conflict in Yemen has been raging for four years. It has been characterized by bloodshed, violence, as well as deterioration of the humanitarian, security and economic situation for the Yemeni people.

Despite the UN-led peace efforts and initiatives, the outcomes on the ground are still below expectations. A ray of hope finally emerged from the last round of negotiations in Stockholm. For the first time, an agreement on Hudaidah has been signed last December.

Is this a beginning of a feasible and lasting peace or just another wasted opportunity? Join us to understand the historical background of the crisis, examine the political, humanitarian, and security environments, as well as examine future prospects.
