The Yemeni Institute for Development of Democracy plans a two-day workshop on “The Media and Democracy”. During 9-10 November, key Yemeni journalists will speak about their experiences in promoting democracy in the country. A number of Western embassies will also participate by giving their assessment on Yemen’s press freedom and democratization. 
“We are happy with this effort, which is being co-financed with help from the Canadian government,” explained Mr. Ahmed Al-Haj, Board Member of the YIDD and Coordinator of the workshop.
