Marie-Christine Heinze: Framing the Yemeni Revolution

This two-year research project (start: Sept. 2012), funded by the Volkswagen Foundation, is a joint endeavor of the University of Bonn and the independent Yemeni research institute Yemen Polling Center to investigate the struggle over the production of mobilizing and counter-mobilizing ideas and meanings among the various political groups and actors in Yemen during the time of the upheavals in 2011, as well as the ongoing transition process. Amongst others, project outputs will include two academic conferences (one in Sana'a and one in Bonn) on the (Yemeni) "Arab Spring" as well as a website (Arabic) documenting Yemeni "Voices of Change".
