The attacks and blockade on Yemen by the Saudi-led multinational coalition has killed thousands and triggered humanitarian disaster. The longstanding conflict between the Houthi rebels and Salih militias on the one side and those loyal to the government on the other - as well as many other groups fighting for their interests - appears to have evolved into a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. In 2011, however, thousands of Yemenis had taken to the streets to protest for a better future for their country. When the former president Ali Abdullah Salih signed over power, there were hopes that this would signal the beginning of a new period of transition. Yemen and the Search for Stability focuses on the aspirations that inspired revolutionary action, and analyzes what went wrong in the years that followed. It examines the different groups involved in the protests - Salih supporters, Muslim Brothers, Salafis, Houthis, secessionists, women, youth and Islamic minorities - in terms of their competing visions for the country's future and their internal struggles.

The book traces the impact of the 2011 upheavals on these groups' ideas for a 'new Yemen' and the mistakes committed in the transition process. At the same time, contributors look forward and point towards prospects for stability for the country and positive change.
