The Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict
Thursday, October 8th, 1pm ET Title: The Nagorno Karabakh Conflict: Contextualizing the New Violence in a Long-Standing Dispute
Abstract: Fighting has flared between Armenia and Azerbaijan once again over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding territories. This outbreak of violence, the worst since a 2016 conflagration that claimed over 300 lives, comes at a time of global upheaval and uncertainty. Shifts in foreign policy strategies by regional players Russia and Turkey may provide fewer incentives for leadership in Azerbaijan and Armenia to pursue stabilizing avenues to find peace. Join us at Virtual ASN for a conversation about the events in Karabakh, whether they represent a shift from the previous political and strategic trendlines, and possible future trajectories.
