A number of Yemeni politicians and researchers from different political affiliations and will gather in a joint dialogue seminar “What is happening in Yemen?” will be held in Doha on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, to probe into the recent war developments and their political and strategic implications in Yemen and the region.

The seminar is a joint initiative by several academic institutions and think tanks: Ibn Khaldon Centre for Humanities and Social Sciences, Al Jazeera Centre for Studies (AJCS), Al Jazeera Mubasher, and Brookings Doha Center (BDC). It will take place at Ibn Khaldoun Hall at Qatar University at 6:30 pm (Doha standard time).

The seminar will discuss the aftermath of the Yemeni war that erupted nearly five years ago and the possible gains/losses made or endured by each of local or regional political actors. Panelists will also address the recent dynamics in south Yemen with the rise of the Transitional Council, through the support of the United Arab Emirates, by taking control of Aden, and other military and political developments. The panelists will also weigh on the political solution and the likelihood of a divided Yemen through regional manipulation.

The list of invited speakers includes Yasser al-Yamani, a leading figure in the General People's Congress; Mohammed al-Bukhaiti, a member of Ansar Allah’s politburo (via satellite); Bakeel al-Zandani, head of the International Affairs Department at Qatar University; and Saeed Thabit, Al Jazeera bureau chief in Sana’a. The session will be moderated by Hamdi Al-Bokari, Al Jazeera correspondent in Yemen.
