Nagorno-Karabakh: Preventing Conflict from Reigniting Between Armenia and Azerbaijan

Wednesday, May 18, 2011
7:00pm-8:30pm
041 Haldeman Center
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories:
A panel discussion examining the conflict over Nagorno Karabakh, a self- proclaimed autonomous republic in the Caucasus mountains. After fighting a war over this territory 20 years ago, tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan have heightened over the last year. Scholars, political observers, and diplomats are concerned about a new outbreak of hostilities. Nagorno Karabakh remains one of the last unresolved disputes caused by the break-up of the Soviet Union and the ambiguous nature of the Republic raises important questions regarding movements of self-determination, territorial integrity, ethnic conflict, and the prospects for peace in the Caucasus region. Government Professor Bridget Coggins, Ambassador Yalowitz, Director of the Dickey Center for International Understanding and former Ambassador to Georgia, and Stephan Astourian, Historian of the Caucasus at UC Berkeley will explore this issue from historical, political science, and War and Peace perspectives. Please join on: WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 7 PM. 041 Haldeman Center.
