Nagorno-Karabakh: Humanitarian, Geographic, and Geopolitical Considerations for the Broader Region
One month ago, a lightning military offensive by Azerbaijani forces led to Baku’s seizure of Nagorno-Karabakh. The surprise operation upended the regional balance of power and displaced over 100,000 of the region’s ethnic Armenian residents. The full impact of Nagorno-Karabakh's dissolution for local populations, other “frozen conflicts,” and the fate of Russian influence in the Caucasus and Central Asia remains to be seen. Edward C. Holland, Akram Umarov, and Jennifer Wistrand discussed the aftermath of last month’s events from humanitarian, geographic, and geopolitical perspectives.
This event is part of the Kennan Institute’s spotlight on the Caucasus & Central Asia.
