The American Society of International Law, No Peace Without Justice, and the Yemen Peace Project present a special event on Tuesday, January 15.

At a time of global attention on the Gulf Region and the catastrophic conflict in Yemen, the human rights and humanitarian situation both within the UAE and beyond its borders have been in the headlines. This event will explore the current situation on the ground and the prospects for promoting human rights compliance and accountability in challenging times. Two separate panels will address internal challenges to human rights within the UAE and the prospect of accountability for the ongoing Yemen conflict.

Panel 1: Looking Inwards: The Challenges to Human Rights and the Rule of Law in the UAE
Panel 2: Looking Outwards: Accountability and Reparations for the Yemen Conflict

Yemen's humanitarian catastrophe and US policy

Yemen currently faces the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Seven million people are on the verge of starvation, and a child dies every ten minutes of preventable disease. How has US support for the Saudi-led military coalition helped fuel this crisis, and what can voters do to make US policy a part of the solution?

YPP executive director Will Picard will address these questions at two free public events.
