Professor Mancini's talk focuses on the Arab uprising of 2010-2011 and its impact on Yemen. The UN sent envoys to facilitate a transition before war broke out. While these mediation efforts mainly failed for circumstantial reasons, the session will look at the effectiveness of sanctions and mediation on solving the crisis.
This is the tenth in a series of 'Politics and IR Brown Bag Lunch Sessions' organised by the Centre on Asia and Globalisation. Launched in Academic Year 2017/18, the new initiative aims to provide a more casual and intimate setting for CAG faculty members to share their nascent research ideas on international relations over lunch, as well as engaging in unconstrained and thought-provoking discussion.
