The introductory chapter outlines the research question, research methods, and structure of the book. The book aims at exploring the ‘grassroots’ dynamics of the Houthi conflict in its area of origin by giving full play to the welter of local driving forces. The research question is related to anthropology’s preference for small-scale networks, local communities, and other micro-entities. Based on a bottom-up approach and a triangulation of qualitative content analysis, qualitative social science methodology (ethnographic fieldwork) and digital anthropological fieldwork, the book offers an intimate insight in one of the world’s most neglected and misunderstood conflicts.

Keywords:   Yemen, Houthi, Conflict, Social Anthropology, triangulation, qualitative content analysis, Digital Anthropology, Ethnographic fieldwork, Bottom-up approach
