The Yemen Polling Center (YPC) was awarded the 2019 MENA World Poll ‘Courage Under Fire’ award from Gallup, Inc., an American analytics and advisory company based in Washington, D.C. The award was created to recognize organizations for their extraordinary data collection abilities under conflict conditions. The award was presented to Amr Muqbil, representing YPC, during the annual MENA World Poll meeting in Tunis, Tunisia, between 4 and 5 February 2020. YPC was awarded for its excellent and high-standard research services generated under the challenges of war and a critical security situation.
