Join our panelists as they come together to discuss the humanitarian dimensions of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The session will discuss the humanitarian consequences of the six-week war in and around Nagorno-Karabakh that erupted between Armenia and Azerbaijan in autumn 2020. The brutal fighting in Karabakh – an Armenian-populated enclave within Azerbaijan - ended with a Russian-brokered ceasefire that sealed Azerbaijan’s victory in the war. The war that was launched at the peak of the global pandemic has left many humanitarian challenges, including the need to ensure basic needs and well-being of returning residents in Karabakh as well as those who are being displaced from Karabakh, the faith of war prisoners, and the livelihoods of border communities affected by a new division of borders between the two countries.
