An online interview with Tigran Grigoryan and Kelsey Rice

The conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nargono-Karabakh has been simmering since the collapse of the USSR. Since, Nagorno-Karabkah has stood for the quintessential “frozen conflict” in the region. But Azerbaijan made a decisive move in December 2022—it blocked the Lachin Corridor, the main conduit for supplying the disputed area. Then, last September, Azeri forces moved in and ethnically cleansed the Armenian population, roughly 100,000 people, and dismantled local governance. All while the international community stood idle as the “frozen conflict” was resolved. What is the history of this conflict? What forces in Armenia and Azerbaijan have stoked this conflict? And why did Azerbaijan decide to ethnically cleanse Karabakh of its Armenia residents?

In this live interview with Tigran Grigoryan (The Regional Center for Democracy and Security) and Kelsey Rice (Berry College) will delve into these questions and discuss the region since the cleansing of Nagorno-Karabakh in September 2023.

This event will supplement The Eurasian Knot’s episode on Nagorno-Karabakh in October 2022. Then, we turned to Rafael Khachaturian (University of Pennsylvania) and Richard Antaramian (University of Southern California) for their analysis of Armenia, Azerbaijan and the implications of the conflict over Nagorno Karabakh.
