In this episode we take our first look at the efforts of the international community in Yemen, a subject we’ll come back to in several future episodes. The first segment features an interview with the UK’s ambassador to Yemen, Mr. Nicholas Hopton, who summarizes for us his government’s role in the country’s affairs. This is followed by a chat with Ms. Kate Nevens of Saferworld, who talks about the non-governmental side of things. The episode wraps up with an excerpt from an interview with Yemeni writer and activist Farea al-Muslimi, who shares a personal perspective on US-Yemeni relations.
