International Law and the Recent Fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh

In this presentation, Kamal Makili-Aliyev will discuss the contested legal status of Nagorno-Karabakh, based on his previous research in that field, as well as the prospect of lasting peace under the Russian-brokered tripartite agreement of 9 November 2020, which brought the 6-week fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan to an end. Cornelius Wiesener will provide discussant comments, drawing on his own experience from Nagorno-Karabakh and highlighting a number of legal issues that may have implications far beyond the conflict itself.
