Abstract:The rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran is not recent. Symptoms of this disparity appeared in 1979, after the Iranian Islamic Revolution, and have developed over time. Whereas, before both states were allies, their relationship progressively moved into a conflictual one. They are today competing through a religious scope to become the regional power. The aim of the thesis is to analyse if the war in Yemen represents a strategic arena for Saudi Arabia and Iran's competition and if their actions in Yemen since 2015 have developed the conflict into a proxy war. By following the offensive realism and security dilemma theory of the International Relations field, this thesis is examining if this rivalry has any consequences on the ongoing war in Yemen.
