Transition at a Crossroads: Moving Beyond the GCC Agreement in Yemen

December 09, 2013

In late 2011, Yemeni political leaders and stakeholders endorsed the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Agreement, which laid out a two-year roadmap for resolving Yemen's political paralysis. The agreement scripted a process with an inclusive National Dialogue, a new constitution, a constitutional referendum and national elections to move the country forward.

Elections for All: Empowering the Underrepresented

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees all individuals the freedom to partake in their nation’s government and political processes, including elections.
