Yemen Papers at MESA 2020

Updated: Oct 3, 2020

This year MESA will be a Zoom meeting online. AIYS will not host an "Information Meeting" during the conference, but will host one in December to reflect on events in Yemen during the past year. Information on this will be posted in the news blog.

There are several papers on Yemen this year, as noted below... Note that the time given is for the start of the panel and not the individual paper. As a MESA member you can access more details on the papers and panels on the MESA website. All times are Eastern Daylight Savings Time (e.g., NY and Washington DC time zone).
