IPOL 340 - Yemen:Anatomy of a FailedState
This one-credit course will examine Yemen’s contemporary history from the end of the Cold War to today. This will encompass unification in 1990, the Arab spring protests in 2011 and 2012 and the overlapping wars that are ongoing in the country. Students will come away with a firm grounding in the political players involved: from al-Qaeda members and Arab strongmen, to local militia leaders and foreign governments. They will also emerge with a sense of why Yemen has become such an important arena both for regional powers – Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Iran – as well as in US counterterrorism policy.
