Nagorno-Karabakh – A ticking time bomb

17 September 2010
Amanda Paul (Senior Policy Analyst)

With recent intensified skirmishes between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, this commentary by Amanda Paul looks at the current state of play, and says the international community gives the impression of being unconcerned about the increasing dangers of ‘war by accident’. She argues that the international community needs to be more ‘hands on’ in solving the issue, and that the European Union, in particular, should take greater responsibility and have a clear strategy for engaging with this smouldering conflict in its own ‘Neighbourhood’ (or back yard).
