Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

This essay explores the relationship between democratization in Armenia and Azerbaijan and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Though today, the conflict is an obstacle to democratization, the solution of the war in the long run also rests with democratization. These intertwined dynamics call for a long term vision of incremental democratization.
