Azerbaijan: External Relations, Internal Realities
Speakers at this event will explore the likely developments in Azerbaijan's domestic and foreign policies in the short to medium term. With Azerbaijan's economic growth slowing down after the peak in oil production in 2010, steering the country's economic development through the next decade is likely to pose new challenges for the regime. At the same time, Baku has engendered increased international concerns about the domestic political scene by intensifying its harrassment of opposition activists and further tightening control over the media.
