ONE TEAM • NATIONWIDE REACH • GLOBAL AVAILABILITY
The Yemen Policy Center was founded in March 2020 by a group of Yemeni and German researchers associated with the Yemen Polling Center, a Yemeni NGO, headquartered in Taiz, Yemen. With our work we want to impact Yemeni and international policymaking with the ultimate goal to improve the living conditions of the Yemeni people.
Yemen Policy is a think tank that developed out of the Yemen Polling Center’s research department. Founded in 2004, the Yemen Polling Center is the first public opinion and polling organisation in Yemen. Since its establishment it has implemented hundreds of projects in the fields of media, security, civil society, academic cooperation and more.
As Yemen Policy, we want to have a stronger impact on policy-making, while still relying on rigorous research of the Polling Center. We promote non-violence, human rights, and social change through research, education, activism, and influencing public policies.
Further, Yemen Policy supports young Yemeni research talents, by creating genuine opportunities for career development. Our approach is one way for Yemenis to confront the conflict, which is by creating the space and providing research tools, writing techniques and social networks for Yemeni researchers who are becoming increasingly isolated.
Our data is collected by the highly qualified team at our sister organization, the Yemen Polling Center, headquartered in Taiz, Yemen. YPC has over 15 years of experience in qualitative and quantitative research and has won numerous awards for its work.
WITH 15 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, THE YEMEN POLLING CENTER HAS BECOME IS AN EXPERT FOR FIELDWORK IN CONFLICT ENVIRONMENTS.
Our work is supported by a group of international academics, policy experts and journalists.
