In this episode, we speak with Maysaa Shuja al-Deen, a non-resident fellow at the Sana’a Center for Strategic Studies, about the evolution of the Houthi movement in Yemen.
We cover how the Houthis have impacted the geopolitical state of Yemen today and what their control of Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, means for the state apparatus of Yemen. We also examine the interaction of the Houthis with other actors in the Yemeni conflict, including Iran and the Southern Transitional Council, and gain a better understanding of the demands and motives of the Houthi leadership.
