It is easy to see how the Yemeni people have been invisible victims of the Ukraine War. Shifts in global attention and humanitarian priorities have had disastrous consequences for Yemen over the past year. This is, however, yet another example of putting the West at the center of World History and reducing the rest of the world to the role of supporting cast and perennial understudies. In this lecture we will shift focus and think about how the Yemen has been a critical space to reshape the way in which warfare is waged in the 21st c., in the process reshaping conflict in such distant theaters as the Ukraine.
