Is There a Path to Peace in Yemen?
New York, December 21, 2015—By deploying drones in a hunt for suspected terrorists and backing the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen, the United States is fueling “a legacy of violence” and creating bitter enemies among the civilian population, warned Yemeni writer and activist Farea Al-Muslimi, who spoke at Columbia Law School last week. The December 9 event was sponsored by the Law School’s Human Rights Institute, Rightslink, and the Columbia Human Rights Law Review, as well as Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights and the Middle East Institute.
