Yemen's National Dialogue Begins

Yemen's "National Dialogue," an effort to resolve the divisions that have wracked the country since President Salih stepped aside (but didn't entirely leave the stage), is getting under way. I'm no Yemen expert, so I'll refer you to those who are. For some background, let me recommend Danya Greenfield, "Overcoming the Pitfalls of Yemen's National Dialogue"; Stephen W. Day, "Can Yemen Be a Nation United?"; and Ahram Online talks to Yemen's Minister of Legal Affairs: "Saleh Loyalists Impeding Transition, Yemeni Minister Says."
