Tawakkol Karman, Nobel Prize Laureate 2011, journalist, activist and founder of Women Journalists Without Chains
Chair: Ginny Hill, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House

Yemenis responded to the Arab Spring in their millions. While Tunisia and Egypt ejected their governments, and Libya received help from the international community to force its ruler from power, the speaker will argue that Yemenis are looking at a long hard winter with very little help from the outside. The 2011 Nobel Laureate will describe the struggle so far from her position at the heart of the youth revolution. She will offer her thoughts on how a democratic Yemen should look, and how the international community could contribute to help Yemenis achieve this goal.

Please note the speaker will be speaking in Arabic with consecutive interpretation in English.
