By purchasing this issue you get immediate access to the PDF and a hard copy shipped to your door!

Only a year ago we witnessed the second Nagorno-Karabakh war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. It took at least 5,000 lives and significantly shifted the geopolitics in the South Caucuses. One year on, we reflect on this conflict and seek a chance for lasting peace for the people of Armenia, Azerbaijan and their neighbours. We gathered opinions from authors who argue that the way forward is through shared infrastructure and transportation links. We publish these essays believing that having such a debate is an important step, even if some analysts may doubt the success of Pax Caucasia.
