Anti-Black Racism in Yemen: Manifestations and Responses


Anti-Black Racism is still very present in Yemen, with a discriminatory caste system that is based on skin colour. Nevertheless, there are initiatives and solutions being put forward to combat this and ways in which awareness is being raised. This paper seeks to explore the dynamics of anti-Black racism in Yemen and how resistance against this is expressed, as well as the obstacles activists face and ways to overcome these in the future.

Dr Mohammed Almahfali has published the paper "Anti-Black Racism in Yemen: Manifestations and Responses" with the Arab Reform Initiative.
