Seminar with Allison Pytlak
The Humanitarian Impact of Arms in Yemen

On 11 October, the Meiji University Research Institute for the History of Global Arms Transfer and the Arms and Civil Society Research Forum will co-host a seminar titled, “The Humanitarian Impact of Arms in Yemen”.

The devastating conflict in Yemen is exacerbated by a continuous supply of weapons to the coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia. Many of those countries supplying the weapons are doing so in contradiction to national or international commitments. In this seminar, Allison Pytlak, Policy & Advocacy Specialist of Control Arms Secretariat, will outline how weapons are being used against civilians in Yemen, who is supplying them and what global civil society is doing in response.

The event is supported by Terra Renaissance and Inter-Band (Control Arms Japan Coalition members).
