Abstract
EN
Contemporary Yemen holds a paradoxical place in the imagination and policies of the international community. While often being depicted as a strategic country located at the crossroads of continents and commercial routes, or as a source of quasi-existential threat when contemporary jihadi groups are mentioned, its habitants remain marginalized. The strategies of the world’s great or regional powers focusing on Yemen have thus generally lacked coherence, continuity, and relevance. Dominant interest for Yemen among foreign decision makers and experts has for long appeared to be structured around a set of selective obsessions (Bonnefoy, 2018) . These rarely had much to do with Yemen itself and more often than not let its inhabitants appear as pawns of wider dynamics.
