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.
From 07-12 September, we hosted a Summer School on “Academic Approaches to Peace-building (in Yemen)” in Amman. Yemeni and German doctoral and graduate students, activists and researchers came together for six days of extensive and lively discussions that were marked by tears as well as laughter, but most importantly mutual respect and understanding.
