In September 2020, Azerbaijan’s military advanced into the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and, by November, the Armenian side lost control not only of parts of the disputed territory but also of the security zone seized during the First Karabakh War in 1992-1994. Join us for a forum to explore the history and human cost of this war, the impact of Russian and Turkish rivalry in the region, and the prospects for long-term peace.
