In November 2011, an agreement brokered by the GCC brought an end to Yemen’s tumultuous uprisng. The National Dialogue Conference has opened a window of opportunity for change, bringing Yemen’s main political forces together with groups that were politically marginalised. Yet, the risk of collapse is serious, and if Yemen is to remain a viable state, it must address numerous political, social, and economic challenges.
