The war in Yemen is now in its sixth year, with tens of thousands killed, millions displaced, and many more dependent on humanitarian assistance for survival. Yemen now constitutes one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, with nearly 80 percent of the country’s 28 million residents requiring assistance. How do the dynamics of Yemen’s civil war shape the country’s humanitarian crisis, how do broader geopolitical divides tie into the conflict?
Highlighting the origins, conditions, and influences behind the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen, this resource guide is made available with educational purposes for K-12 curriculums. Critical social studies elements such as civics and politics, history, geography, and economics are outlined at different depths to provide engaging context subtitles across a wide range of academic levels to generate age appropriate global competence. Detailed information and up to date educational resources are presented to the reader regarding the role the international community has in addressing the crisis; how global powers are competing to influence the outcome of the crisis; the impact global events have had and how they added on to the conflict; the toll on the local populous; the regression of civil liberties and human rights within the vicinity, and more.
