Conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh: What you need to know about the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan – video with Gerard Toal, John O’Laughlin and Maia Otarashvili

Join us for a special virtual panel discussion about the ongoing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh. The “frozen conflict” in Nagorno Karabakh is no longer “frozen”. Fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces over the breakaway territory of Nagorno-Karabakh renewed on September 27th and still continues to rage. The current death toll stands at nearly 300 and counting, this includes civilians. Both sides are shelling major cities, and the conflict appears to be intensifying. The conflict has major ramifications not just for Armenia and Azerbaijan, but also for the region more broadly and could draw in major regional powers – Russia, Turkey, Iran. It threatens to destabilize the Black Sea/ Caucasus region, where peace is already fragile.
