British-Yemeni Society Annual Lecture

Conservative MP Alan Duncan, Shadow Secretary for Trade, Industry and Energy.

The British-Yemeni Society Annual Lecture: Yemen: The Fight for Stability and Hope

The Rt Hon Sir Alan Duncan MP will give the 2015 British-Yemeni Society Annual Lecture on 4 February at 6pm at the Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre, SOAS, University of London, Thornhaugh Street, WC1.

The title is Yemen: The Fight for Stability and Hope.

Sir Alan Duncan played a key role in Britain’s relations with Yemen in his period as Minister of State in the Department of International Aid from 2010 to 2014.  During that time he visited Yemen several times and was closely involved in the UK’s co-chairmanship of the Friends of Yemen process and in shaping the UK’s assistance programme to Yemen.  In 2014 he was appointed the British Government’s Special Envoy to Yemen in which role he works to help deliver the government’s Yemen Strategy, which includes security, stability and development objectives..

Sir Alan is thus in a unique position to discuss Britain’s role in supporting Yemen through its current transition process.

This event is jointly organised by the London Middle East Institute (LMEI) and SOAS with generous support from the MBI al Jaber Foundation.
