Virtual Event | The Azerbaijan-Armenia Conflict and the American Interest

This event will premiere on this page on Friday, September 23 at 12:00 p.m.

On September 13, fighting flared up between Azerbaijan and Armenia, killing dozens of soldiers on both sides. Tensions between these South Caucasus countries have been high for decades. In 2020, their most recent war ended in a major defeat for Armenians, who had to retreat from large territories they had occupied since the early 1990s but which are internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan. Armenians remain in control of parts of this Karabakh region. Russia enables the Armenian military presence there, and Moscow brokered and helped to enforce a fragile truce in 2020. However, international efforts to bring about a more lasting peace have so far failed. What are the immediate causes of the latest outbreak of fighting? What are the prospects of peace? What is the American interest in the conflict? Please join us for a panel discussion on this timely issue.
