Back to Karabakh

Jun 5, 2023 | Economics, People, Videos

Two years after a ceasefire between Armenia and Azerbaijan, conflict in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh is ongoing. The heavily militarised zone, now under Azerbaijan’s control, has displaced hundreds of thousands of people and continues to be a source of tension between the two nations.

The Nagorno-Karabakh region is home to both Armenians and Azerbaijanis, with most of its population being ethnic Armenians. After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Armenia sought to annex the region but was met with strong opposition from Azerbaijan. This resulted in a bloody six-year war that left up to 30,000 dead and hundreds of thousands displaced.

In April 2016 a ceasefire was agreed upon between Armenia and Azerbaijan which put an end to over two decades of conflict in the region. However, tensions remain high as skirmishes continue to occur along the frontlines. As a result, many people who were forced to flee during the war are still unable to return home due to ongoing violence and instability in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Furthermore, those displaced by the conflict have been living in captivity and facing discrimination since their arrival in Baku – which is now home for thousands of Karabakh refugees. To better understand this situation watch our documentary film ‘Living In Limbo: The Story Of The Displaced People Of Karabakh’. Through personal testimonies you will get an insight into how difficult it is for those affected by this seemingly forgotten war to rebuild their lives in a new country without any identity or rights.

This documentary offers us an opportunity to learn more about what has happened in Nagorno-Karabakh over the last two decades, as well as understand how it affects those forced from their homes and living in limbo far away from their homeland. We invite you to explore this important issue further by watching our documentary film ‘Living In Limbo: The Story Of The Displaced People Of Karabakh’.
