  • The Joint Arab Military Force and Yemen: Stability or Sectarianism?

    The conclusion of the Arab League Summit on March 30, 2015 culminated in a grand statement announcing the formation of a joint Arab military force to tackle regional challenges from the Maghreb to Yemen. While significant, particularly given the ongoing military operations and ground force mobilization led by Saudi Arabia against the Houthis in Yemen, the formation of a unified force has long preoccupied the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries in an effort to shore up their own security.
