The Crisis in Yemen: introduction by Greg Gottlieb, presentations by Monica Toft, Martha Mundy, and Dyan Mazurana

Greg Gottlieb introduces the panel.
Monica Toft addresses geopolitical context in which the war in Yemen–and the resulting famine–is occurring.
Martha Mundy provides an overview of the assault by coalition forces against Yemen already limited food production capacity, demonstrating through maps how bombs have consistently fallen on the country’s agricultural, irrigation and fishing capacities.
Dyan Mazurana draws from the record in other conflicts zones, combined with what we know about trends in Yemen, to point out the long-term impacts on children and adolescents of sustained violence, crimes against humanity and exposure to famine conditions.
