This chapter looks at the interaction of Yemenis with states/empires from a political perspective. It documents the processes of exclusion and inclusion that Yemenis have encountered since the arrival of European powers in the region. As well, the chapter illustrates how Yemenis tried to move past their subordinate positions and change their political situations during both the early colonial period and onward into the postwar era. The chapter focuses on how Yemeni interactions with states/empires developed in the context of dynastic changes; the introduction of citizenship rights; the formation of political parties; and the emergence of independence politics, socialism, and neoliberal democracy.

Keywords:   Yemeni political position, European powers, dynastic changes, citizenship rights, political parties, independence politics, socialism, neoliberal democracy
