Yemenis are faced with the task of reconstructing political institutions, public infrastructure and markets in the face of incalculable destruction. According to polling carried out by Marie-Christine Heinze and Hafez Albukari, local communities have come to rely almost exclusively on local and self-organized forms of security provision. Marieke Transfeld’s research shows that many Yemenis have actually remained quite physically secure during the war, given the urban concentration of the war and the predominantly rural population. These rural communities, however, are also cut off from most public infrastructure and state services.
