Perspectives on the Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict
In 2020, the so-called ‘frozen conflict’ in Arsakh/Nagorno-Karabakh once again erupted into violence. While the world was focused on reducing pandemic deaths, Armenia and Azerbaijian’s six week war brought over 5000 deaths and the displacement of tens of thousands. An uneasy truce and controversial settlement brokered by Russia ended hostilities in November. Yet much remains unresolved. Join us as a panel of experts with regional ties bring different disciplinary perspectives to bear to help us understand the history, relations, and prospects for peace in this troubled region.
