KarabakhSpace.eu is a platform, a forum, and a resource on Armenian-Azerbaijani relations, with particular reference to events and developments in and around Nagorno-Karabakh in the aftermath of the 44-day war in 2020. Where appropriate, we will look at the issues from a regional and geopolitical perspective, but we will always give special attention to the people of the region, their lives and challenges, and how to move towards a positive and sustainable future for all of them.

Opinion: Reconciliation requires empathy and understanding to each other's tragedies

In this op-ed for commonspace.eu, Vasif Huseynov says Armenia has no right to occupy the moral high ground on humanitarian issues in the South Caucasus. If really interested in peace and reconciliation, both sides should condemn crimes against humanity including war crimes and hold the perpetrators accountable instead of denying the facts, he says. “The establishment of a mutually agreed mechanism to investigate war crimes and address the concerns of the people directly affected by them could be an important element that can be included in a peace treaty”, he argues.
