Azerbaijan’s latest offensive has put an end to the dreams of independence of the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), whose leaders have announced that it will be dissolved on 1 January 2024. Through blockades, atrocities, famine and repression, Aliyev’s regime has driven more than 100,000 Armenians into exile, taking refuge in Armenia, whose territorial integrity is in danger. Can the international community turn a blind eye to this new crime against humanity in 2023?

To discuss the issue, the Boghossian Foundation is organising a conference with Bruno Cathala, French magistrate, former first Registrar of the International Criminal Court, Vincent Duclert, historian and genocide specialist, Anita Khachaturova, who conducted extensive field research in Nagorno-Karabakh after the 2020 war, and Gaïdz Minassian, a journalist with Le Monde.
