Eight different papers are to be presented to the seminar on “Violence in Yemen” sponsored by the Human Rights, Liberties and NGO Committee of the Consultative Council. Most of them address the social, psychological, tribal, and other reasons for the violence. In addition, specific violence against the state, women, children, etc. will be tabulated and addressed.
The seminar, to be held at the Center for Yemen Studies and Research during 26-27 August, will also offer possible solutions to the problems.
Abdulaziz Al-Saqqaf, Chairman of the Committee, said the seminar brings together law enforcement bodies, legislators, and academicians. “We are interested in documenting the phenomenon and finding solutions.”
