Abstract
EN
In the early 1990s, after unification of North and South, the Republic of Yemen embarked itself in an outstanding democratization process that no country in the region had yet experienced. The constitution, approved by referendum, appeared as particularly liberal, granting civil society and opposition parties a wide range of rights and a share of the exercise of power. Expectations were high, there were some tangible results (for example during the 1993 parliamentary elections or when a multi-party coalition ruled the country between 1990 and 1997) but unfortunately these have been short-lived due to multiple factors, either internal or international, political or economic (...).
