We are excited to announce that interest in our upcoming conference has grown outside the Republic of Yemen. Sensationalist media reports are now a thing of the past and people begin to see the situation in Yemen under a different light. The Organizing Committee has agreed to allow more time for others to submit their abstracts and join us in Sana’a in May. Our new Deadline for Abstracts is 19 March 2010.
The Society of Arab & Islamic Studies (University of Exeter-UK) along with the Sheba Center for Strategic Studies, the University of Sana’a and the Center for Gulf Studies (University of Exeter-UK) announce the upcoming international academic conference ‘Yemen from the Threshold: Identity, Regionalism and Globalization’. This will be the first conference of its kind in the Republic of Yemen.
Through this most ambitious project we aim to strengthen the relation between Yemeni academics and the international community, and bring together specialists from around the world to engage discussions on the many issues of pressing importance such as regional security, governance, decentralization, political pluralism, legal reform, women’s rights, generational dialogue, crisis reporting, crisis management, the role of the private sector in strategy making, resource management, conflict resolution, dialogue and reconciliation.
This conference will be held in Sana’a, Republic of Yemen from 17 to 19 May 2010. Further information is available through our website www.yemen-2010.com.
Papers may be presented in Arabic or English (working languages). Abstracts must be submitted before 19 March 2010 (extended), each must not exceed 300 words, submit your abstract in English through firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage pre-organized panels on related themes (contact conference coordinator). Abstracts submitted from outside Yemen must be submitted electronically along with registration forms provided in our website (www.yemen-2010.com) through email@example.com.
Abstracts from Yemeni nationals (Arabic or English) must be submitted via post mail to:

We will also produce a joint publication containing all papers presented during the conference. This will provide our participants with exposure of their work beyond Yemen’s borders and contribute to an ongoing dialogue over the many issues engaged during the event.
