This chapter explores the ways in which war and nationalism affected Yemeni mobility both in the inland territory and across the Gulf of Aden region. It particularly focuses on various wider developments, such as the Second World War and the emergence of nationalist movements and pan-Arab ideology, as well as on the United States' more recent “war on terrorism.” These developments have time and again changed the way in which mobility was controlled, yet again demonstrating how state/empire structures mobility, and furthermore the impact of power dynamics on the regional mobility of people. This connection and movement of people back and forth between the Horn of Africa and Yemen has therefore not been simply a matter of individual decisions and networking abilities.

Keywords:   Yemeni mobility, power dynamics, regional mobility, Second World War, nationalist movements, pan-Arab ideology, war on terrorism
