Armenia and Azerbaijan have been in a constant state of tension since the war broke out in 1992 over Nagorno-Karabakh. Despite a 1994 brokered ceasefire, the relationship between the two societies is still characterized by animosity and distrust. Now, global leaders are voicing support for the Azerbaijani and Armenian governments to resolve this long-term conflict by putting in place specific actions for its settlement.


This project will build a platform for dialogue and reconciliation between Armenians and Azeris by bringing together NGOs, analysts, government officials, journalists, and youth to recommend actionable policies that lead to improved relations.

Long-Term Impact

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has been a roadblock to improved regional relations, and societal dialogue and exchange in the South Caucasus. This project serves as a catalyst for progress by directly addressing a major hurdle to regional politics.
