Dapolito '12 Explores Yemen's Unrest
March 2, 2012
Vermont Law School student Mollie Dapolito '12 recently published an article in the ILSA Quarterly that explored antigovernment protests and other issues facing Yemen.
The article, titled "After Winter in Yemen, Comes an Arab Spring," appears on pages 23-24.
Yemen has been in turmoil since January 2011 when demonstrators called for the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh. His vice president, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, was sworn in as president on Feb. 25 in an election in which he was the only candidate. Protesters remain on the streets, calling for reform of the impoverished nation's military and other institutions.
