The role of Yemeni political movements in the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security framework

Together with Fight for Humanity and supported by the German Federal Foreign Office, we initiated a participatory action research initiative in Yemen involving three key political movements or entities: The Islah Party (Al Islah), the Southern Transitional Council (STC), and Ansar Allah. A team of local researchers, alongside a national coordinator, set out to identify and better understand the factors that encourage the movements to promote the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security framework.


The researchers conducted close to 50 interviews with men and women members of the three movements, including some who are in in leadership positions, as well as with associated civil society organisations and women activists. In addition, the team also interviewed external stakeholders and held three focus group discussions.
