with Dr. Gregory Gause
The crisis in Yemen has directly engaged Saudi Arabia and the UAE in the military conflict, but other Gulf states are also involved diplomatically (Kuwait and Oman). The Yemen intervention has also been tangentially caught up in the conflict between Qatar and its neighbors.
This talk will investigate how the divisions among the Gulf states affect and are affected by the conflict in Yemen.
