The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains one of the most serious factors affecting regional politics and security of the South Caucasus. The lasting conflict in Ukraine, Russia’s international isolation and con-frontation with the West highlight the risk that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict may escalate as a result of the actions of external stakeholders.
What is special about the project?
International organisations and leading Western states can take steps to prevent the Nagorno-Karabakh factor from becoming a new source of confrontation between Russia and the West. An efficient prevention tool would be the conduct of international projects directed towards awareness-raising and consultations involving experts and decision-makers. Apart from other things, such projects can create a platform for contacts between the societies and political elites of Azerbaijan, Armenia and, last but not least, Nagorno-Karabakh. The proposed project is directed at finding solutions to these long-term problems using a multilevel approach including an academic and analytical perspective, and interaction between societies, government agencies and international community.
The project was successfully completed. A series of open roundtables with the participation of a wide audience including the media, civil society, political parties, international organizations and accredited embassies in Armenia, as well as closed expert roundtables on specific aspects of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict were conducted in 2015-2016.
The project-related book, entitled “Deterrence in the Karabakh Conflict” and written by Sergey Minasyan, was published and presented in Yerevan in October 2016.
