Yemen’s crisis is usually described as a straightforward conflict between the legitimate government supported by the Saudi-led coalition and a group of Iranian aided Shi’i rebels allied with ex-president Saleh. This talk sheds light on the complex reality of the situation by examining the underlying structural causes of the crisis, which led to the explosion in 2011, and the reasons for the 2015 collapse of the apparently successful transition deal of 2012, concluding with a brief assessment assessment of the current situation.
