The Yemen Media Call (YMC) is the Sana’a Center’s online version of the Yemen Media Breakfast that was launched in 2015 in Beirut to increase the quality and depth of international news coverage regarding Yemen and the surrounding region. Due to COVID-19, the Center relaunched the program in September 2020 and changed its name to the Yemen Media Call. These online events offer members of the press corps the rare opportunity to have uncensored conversations with respected and influential Yemeni figures in an informal setting.

These calls hosted many reputable Yemeni speakers, including high ranking Yemeni government officials, diplomats, politicians, researchers, economists, historians, tribal leaders, human rights activists, military commanders, businessmen, and conflict survivors. With sessions held on and off the record, international press and researchers affiliated with relevant international organizations and policy makers are invited to join and ask their questions directly to the speakers.
