The recent six-week war and Armenian-Azerbaijani-Russian trilateral agreement have transformed the conflict in Nagorny Karabakh. While the agreement brought the war to an end and stipulates a new security and transit architecture of wider regional significance for the South Caucasus, the prospects for a lasting peace remain uncertain.
What does the regionalization of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict mean for the process to resolve core political issues contested by Armenians and Azerbaijanis? Can the measures stipulated in the trilateral agreement succeed in opening up the South Caucasus to a new era of development and stabilizing inter-dependencies? What do the recent war and regionalization of the conflict mean for longer-term trajectories of regime development and political participation in Armenia and Azerbaijan?
