Change Square is Empty but Change is Still Needed 

When Sanaa's Change Square became the focal point for Yemeni pro-democracy protests in 2011, one of the first posters to appear called the demonstrations there the "first step towards our civil state".
It was remarkable to find such a poster in a country that has always been known for its socio-tribal form of power structure. But that was a period of hope; Change Square was transformed into a collective of tents housing hundreds of activists. >>Read More

In the Face of a Political Storm, Yemen's Women Stand Firm

When Hooria Mashhour, Yemen's minister for human rights, took the oath of office nearly one year ago, little did she know the job would bring personal as well as political hardships.

In July this year, AlMotamar, the official online newspaper for Yemen's ruling party, the General People's Congress - still headed by the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh - published a news story with a provocative headline. "Minister Mashhour Calls for Freedom of Sexuality, Banning Polygamy and Cancellation of Quranic legislation", the headline read.

Yemen’s media freedom in freefall

When the so called Arab Spring started, an atmosphere of revolution swept across the region. Its roots can be found in Tunisia. Things, many thought, were predicted to change. The protests against corruption, oppression were inspiring and the certain restrictions it was thought, would come to an end.

Conflict Resolution Through Culture

‘Where are all the people who want peace?’ I bellowed to a room filled with decision-makers and heads of international organisations.
