Yemen

  • Article // May 08, 2015
    Andreas Krieg
    Yemen, like many other states in the region, has never conformed to the norms of an integral nation state; it has been in a state of crisis since at least the 1990s due to constant competition between the ruling state authority and various clans, tribal groups, transnational movements, and secessionists. In addition to these layers of conflict, regional players have tried to exploit domestic instability to further their own interests. As much as this outside intervention has been a cause of conflict in Yemen, Yemen today will not be able to achieve reasonable stability without the help of regional players. A united GCC strategy on Yemen with the clear intent to prioritize inclusive Yemeni interests over partisan Gulf interests could lay the foundation for this stability.
