What’s happening in Yemen and why? 

Following on from our “Reporting on Syria – on the ground and to the world” webinar event  last year we are running another webinar for Post primary school pupils  on Tuesday 7 December 2021 from 13.30-14.30.  

Hear from journalists who have covered the conflict and a Yemeni colleague on the ground about why the war started, the different parties that are involved, how it is reported in the UK and across the Middle East, and the effects of the conflict on daily life for young people in Yemen.

Our speakers are Nicolas Pelham from The Economist, Bethan McKernan from The Guardian, Bill Law editor of Arab Digest and Rowaida Khulaidi, British Council Director Yemen.

This event will be a Microsoft Teams Live broadcast to schools. There will be time for questions from pupils to all the speakers. 

NB this session is designed for those with no previous knowledge of Arabic language or the Arab World.  To attend this event, please register here.
