Crisis in Yemen: Accountability and Reparations


Please visit to view the live stream of this event.

The conflict in Yemen is currently one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises, yet is often forgotten by the international community. This event aims to explore how war crimes, crimes against humanity and the most egregious human rights violations can be addressed to promote accountability and obtain reparations for the countless victims.

Please join the Stimson Center, the Washington Foreign Law Society, and ASIL for an in depth and expert discussion about the situation on the ground in Yemen, and what solutions can be found to end impunity and uphold fundamental international standards.
