If you like to be at the center of ACTION, Yemen is the place to be. This group project will include 3-4 interns during the academic year who will rotate on the daily news summary and jointly work on multiple medium and long term projects during the year. Last year, interns put together a directory of key political figures from southern Yemen which allowed the larger inter-agency to identify and leverage key political and military personalities to deescalate tensions in the south.
