How to support the fragile peace process in Yemen?
This is CMI’s Peace Talks, our new podcast. In this episode, we focus on what is now needed to support the fragile peace process in Yemen.
The devastating war in Yemen has already lasted four years.
Recently the United Nations warned that the death toll of the war in Yemen could soar to nearly quarter of a million by the end of 2019 and called the conflict one of the “greatest preventable disasters facing humanity”.
In this episode, we focus on what is now needed to support the fragile peace process and what is CMI’s role in different peacemaking efforts.
“There seems to be a complete lack of trust between the main conflict parties. A lot more needs to be done to build this trust”, says CMI’s Yemen Project Manager Sylvia Rognvik.
We also listen to what Yasser Abdullah Al-Raeeini, Minister of State for Implementing the National Dialogue Outcomes in the Yemeni Government, has to say about the crisis.
In CMI’s Peace Talks we look at the world through the lenses of peacemaking. We have conversations with both our own and other top experts on what it takes to build lasting peace in this unstable world situation. In the wise words of our founder, Nobel Peace Laureate Martti Ahtisaari, we believe that all conflicts can be resolved. This podcast is about how to do it.
