CARPO is partner in a project on ‘Academic Approaches to Peace-building and State-building in Yemen’ at the University of Bonn, together with the Gender-Development Research & Studies Center at the University of Sanaa. The project is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service in the framework of its Transformation Partnership. The project’s objective is to investigate and support peace-building and state-building initiatives in post-conflict Yemen from an academic perspective and thus a) to support and strengthen the work of practitioners and policy-makers in the country through the provision of expertise; and b) to build the respective expertise in Yemeni and German academia to support and critically accompany a). Outputs of this project will be one workshop, one summer school and one conference per year as well as pertinent policy papers, to be published through CARPO.
Project duration: 2016-2017
