ESPECIAL | Afinal o que é que se passa no Iémen?

ESPECIAL | Afinal o que é que se passa no Iémen? | Daily World News | Scoop.it

Colocado no fundo da Arábia Saudita mesmo no calcanhar da bota arábica, o Iémen é vizinho do pacífico Omã e tem África a poucos quilómetros de mar vermelho de distância.

O país fica no cruzamento entre a península arábica, a Ásia e a África e a sua cultura e tradição estão ligadas a esta posição de entreposto entre múltiplas culturas. Com lugar de destaque nas ancestrais rotas de especiarias, foi definido pelos romanos como Arabia Felix, em contraponto à Arabia Deserta do norte (atual Arábia Saudita).

Habitam o Iemen 25 milhões de pessoas, quase todas muçulmanas, quase todas dependentes de uma economia que se baseia em produtos básicos como o café, o peixe e o algodão. O grande motor da economia é o petróleo, que não chega às mãos da imensa maioria da população.

Probably the Coolest Political Map Of the World You'll See

Probably the Coolest Political Map Of the World You'll See | Daily World News | Scoop.it

This great map shows the weirdest political "anomalies" in the world.

margarida caetano's insight:
The map was designed by Stanford Professor Martin Lewis. Check out his full post explaining the map, its definitions, and its geo-political complexities.

Lewis explains, "As the title indicates, only a selection of geopolitical anomalies are indicated on the map. Many more are ignored, including the Basque nationalist movement, the Catalan nationality seeking status as a nation, the British bastion of Gibraltar, and the Spanish North African exclaves of Ceuta and Melilla — and that is merely for Spain and environs. In regard to colonial remnants, those of France are emphasized, as they are particularly extensive, scattered, and of diverse geopolitical status."
