Karabakh: A Smoldering Conflict in the Caucasus

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 1219


Please join the Harriman Institute for a book talk with Thomas de Waal (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace).

The Armenian-Azerbaijani dispute over Nagorny Karabakh remains the most dangerous unresolved conflict in the wider Europe. Ten years after its initial release, Thomas de Waal has updated his book Black Garden, which still remains the definitive account of the conflict and the modern history of Armenia and Azerbaijan. Now nearly 20 years since the 1994 ceasefire, Yerevan and Baku have still failed to resolve the dispute and normalize relations, while a new arms race has put the region into even greater danger. De Waal offers explanations for the intractability of the conflict and the complex changing dynamics of both Armenia and Azerbaijan.
