Since the ceasefire in 1994 Azerbaijan and Armenia have remained in deadlock over Nagorny Karabakh. With distrust in the process so widespread, would a more inclusive and multi-faceted approach better address the dynamics of polarisation and provide greater chances of reaching a solution acceptable to all?
Accord issue 17 highlights the obstacles to a sustainable agreement and explores the challenge of bridging the gap between potential for agreement at the negotiating table and popular resistance to the compromises this entails. It contains sections on:
- The background to the conflict
- Perspectives on the peace process from all sides
- Accounts of the official peace process
- Civil society and the peace process
- Post-war dynamics and societal transformations.
