Summary/Abstract: The situation in Yemen has attracted public attention because of the escalating internal crisis earlier this year. Ever since the founding, in 1990, the country was faced with problems that have affected all levels of national security, turning it into an insecurity generator in the region. Yemen became the main terrorist hub from the Middle East and an important pivot for the piracy in the Horn of Africa. Above all, future internal developments in this country would be able to change the entire status quo of the Persian Gulf area. This evolution could transcend regional security developments, having also global implications.
