Conference 2017

On 25 November we concluded our activities of 2017 with a conference on “Academic Approaches to Peacebuilding and Statebuilding in Yemen” in Amman. In three panels our Yemeni colleagues as well as our German colleague Mareike Transfeld presented their works on women’s participation, children, youth, education and (mental) health as well as on culture, media and water in politics and peacebuilding to members of the international community working on Yemen, including the German Ambassador to Yemen, HE Hansjörg Haber. As the Ambassador noted in his opening remarks and is shown by the positive feedback of the audience this conference (as well as the project itself) was and is a rare opportunity of academic exchange with academics and scholars in Yemen. We are looking forward to continuing our cooperation in 2018!
