On 13 June 2014, Conciliation Resources hosted an event in Tbilisi, looking at perspectives for peace since the Nagorny Karabakh ceasefire twenty years ago. This event included an expert panel discussion and led to coverage on Georgian television. Watch the panel discussion and the television interview below.
Through its EPNK activities, Conciliation Resources has sought to give a voice to people marginalised in the peace process and those most affected by the unresolved conflict.
Working with partners, we have generated fresh analysis and new ideas in relation to the peace process and brought these to policymakers. We help local partners to support displaced communities to be more active in addressing their needs, and work with local filmmakers and young people from either side of the conflict divide to produce joint films. These explore alternative views and challenge one-sided narratives on the conflict.
The event included the opening of an exhibition of photographs taken by Giorgi Tsagareli
and Shakh Aivazov
in the run up to and during the Nagorny Karabakh war. This exhibition will be on display until 18 June 2014 in the National Parliamentary Library’s reception hall. See the photos here.
The panel discussion (in English) included insights from Thomas de Waal
(Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington), Tatul Hakobyan (Civilitas, Yerevan), Tabib Huseynov (Saferworld, Tbilisi), Mikheil Mirziashvili (Independent expert, Tbilisi) and Siegfried Woeber (Conciliation Resources, London). Some of the panel speakers took part in a program by the Georgian television station, Studio Re, on the current status and challenges of Nagorny Karabakh.
