Armenia and Azerbaijan

This chapter provides background on the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict as it unfolded in 1988-1994. Rather than a chronological narrative, the chapter tells the story of these events through the prism of four categories of explanation (structural vulnerabilities, transitional factors, leadership and culture). This situates the conflict against the backdrop of the Soviet collapse, equips the reader with basic facts, and distils the main findings of the existing literature on the conflict.

Keywords:   Armenia, Azerbaijan, Soviet ethno-federalism, Nationalist mobilization, Security dilemma, Ethnic violence
