Collaborating to solving Yemen’s problems holistically

posted on 2023-06-07, 20:01 authored by Mark Somos
Yemen is facing multiple difficulties that threaten the stability of the country and the entire Gulf region. The collapse of the Yemeni state could lead to the consolidation of the country being used as the training ground and operations centre for Al Qaeda. This has both regional and international implications. In order to avoid a catastrophic collapse, a holistic long-term solution is needed that acknowledges the military, economic, social, regional and governance challenges. Partial solutions to the problem could be counter-productive. The proposed January 2010 London conference about Yemen should be used as an opportunity to address the situation in a concerted, holistic manner.
