From 18-22 August, our second summer school on “Academic Approaches to Peace-building and State-building in Yemen” took place in Amman. Yemeni and German doctoral and graduate students, activists and researchers came together to discuss issues relating to state-building in times of (violent) conflict, our own roles in research and a range of topics relating to the conflict in Yemen.
From 09-13 April 2017, the researchers involved in this project came together for a joint workshop in Amman. This five-day workshop served two purposes: Firstly, to prepare the upcoming summer school on ‘academic approaches to peace-building and state-building in Yemen’, which was planned for the second half of August 2017.
From 04-08 December, our final activity for 2016 in the framework of our project “Academic Approaches to Peace-building (in Yemen)” took place in Amman. We came together for a conference turned paper-writing workshop in order to work on policy briefs to be published in the framework of this project.
