Registan’s Azerbaijan News & Analysis Archive
Since independence, Azerbaijan’s fortunes have been bolstered by its energy wealth. However, its war over control of Nagorno-Karabakh remains unresolved, fueling persistent tensions and risk of war with Armenia. Meanwhile, Azerbaijan’s relationships with Iran and Russia are often strained. Domestically, both pro-democracy activists and religious conservatives have been targeted by a government determined to remain the sole authority on social and political questions.
Several Registan authors and members of its network of experts have lived, worked, and studied in Azerbaijan and have between them decades of experience in academia, government, and private industry dealing with topics related to Azerbaijan. We use that experience and expertise to report on, contextualize, and analyze current events in Azerbaijan. Registan puts that experience to work to offer research, analysis, and training services tailored to your individual needs. For more information on how we can help you and your organization better understand Azerbaijan, the Caucasus, and Central Asia, visit our services page.
