Osce and the nagorno-karabakh peace process

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Minsk Process for Nagorno-Karabakh has directed unprecedented engagement from key world powers on this decades-old dispute. osce's first peacemaking effort survived a rocky start, evolving into a functional multi-faceted conflict management instrument. While the envisioned "Minsk Conference" was never held, not one of the myriad peace proposals adopted, no status determination for Nagorno-Karabakh ever made, and no refugees or lands returned, the Minsk Process may still be considered a success. Frequent criticism notwithstanding, it has kept Armenia and Azerbaijan engaged in a near continuous diplomatic dialogue, restrained large-scale fighting, and belied fears of a significant regional conflagration. That is a noteworthy achievement.
