Fragmenting states: Learning the lessons from Lebanon and Yemen

This event, organised by the FPC and the SEPAD (Sectarianism, Proxies and De-sectarianisation) project at the Richardson Institute for Peace at Lancaster University, aims to discuss the situation in both Lebanon and Yemen to analyse what is happening, what can be done to improve matters and what can be learned from these crises to help in other conflict and post-conflict situations.

The event will examine what the situation in Lebanon and Yemen says about the nature of states and ideas of sovereignty in times of precarious politics. It will look at the role played by the international community in both fuelling and responding to the crises, with a particular view on what more the UK can do to help.
