Welcome...

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: Inclusive governance is the key for peaceful co-existence in Karabakh

In the latest, in a series of op-eds discussing the future of Nagorno-Karabakh and its people on commonspace.eu, Nurlan Mustafayev says that a security dilemma remains a critical issue for both the Armenian and the Azerbaijani communities in Karabakh, and that dealing with this issue first requires demilitarisation. The author argues that “given the current uncertainty and complexity, the inclusion of both ethnic groups in local governance is one clear thing or a shared vision that should be a part of the overall peace process. The parties’ use of the untapped resources of international law on minority protection, on the one hand, and security, on the other, can play a critical role in the face of political uncertainty.
