Policy Brief - The Youth Movement and its Activists
Policy Brief - The Youth Movement and its Activists

The Independent Youth Movement (YM) was the engine of the 2011 uprisings in Yemen. With the help of online forums such as Facebook, individual independent activists organized the first anti-regime protests in Sana’a and helped to get the protests going. But more important than their activism as such, was what they stood for – the creation of a civil state. By the general population, as well as local and international media the youth movement was perceived as being the only independent force on the square, pursuing genuine political change. Yet, very little is known about the activists who are part of this movement. Therefore, this policy brief based on a survey conducted amongst youth activists in 2012 provides some background of youth activists and their activism, as well as some general challenges they are facing.
