Abstract [en]

After nearly four years of war, representatives from the two parties fighting for central power in Yemen - the internationally recognized Hadi government and the rebel movement Ansar Allah – met each other for UN-led consultations in Stockholm in December 2018. The consultations resulted in the Stockholm agreement: the peace process that had long been deadlocked had finally been resumed and given new conditions. This is a qualitative study that aims to provide knowledge on how the United Nations constructs the newly enacted peace process for Yemen, as well as the consequences this way of constructing the peace process can lead to. The study draws attention to the consensus reached by stakeholders within the UN - despite different perspectives and interests - in deciding on Yemen, and finds an understanding of the consequences these may have at the end of the peace process. The results show that there are three main themes that describe how the UN has constituted the resumed peace process in Yemen. The UN is working for an (1) intra-Yemeni peace process; with a view to (2) resuming a political transition process involving a central government, new constitution and re-established state institutions; and to achieve the foregoing, the UN must bring about (3) humanitarian action. These ways of constructing the peace process lead to consequences that can make - or exacerbate - the UN's efforts to achieve a lasting peace in Yemen. Especially because groups in southern Yemen are currently excluded in the peace process, and because that the highest priority UN is trying to deal with in the peace process - to reaching out with humanitarian aid to the civilian population - risks being counteracted by the UN itself.
