Former Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh was assassinated by Houthi forces on December 4, 2017. “No politician has left a greater mark on Yemen’s modern history than President Saleh. He was known as a master of establishing and disbanding political coalitions, knowing correctly that no single political power can rule Yemen,” Gamal Gasim, Ph.D., professor of Middle East Studies at Grand Valley State University, wrote for Al Jazeera.
Please join Dr. Gamal Gasim for a conversation with Michael Van Denend, Executive Director of the World Affairs Council of Western Michigan, about Yemen’s political future, including the ramification of President Saleh’s death, identifying his successor in the General People’s Congress, and the possibility of an uprising in Sanaa.
