Brussels, 3 February 2014 – Although more than 25 years have passed since the beginning of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, there has been little progress in negotiations towards its peaceful settlement, and the fragile truce reached in 1994 continues to be violated with sporadic clashes and shooting.

Resolving this decades-long conflict, and related tensions in the South Caucasus, is crucial not only for speeding up democratisation processes and fostering respect for minority groups in the region, but also for ensuring the European Union has a secure and stable neighbourhood, that allows for closer regional cooperation. The OSCE Minsk Group has been at the forefront of developing concrete proposals for a negotiated settlement, but twenty years of limited peace talks suggest that

additional efforts are urgently needed to overcome the tensions that currently divide the South Caucasus region on a political, economic, as well as societal level.

This conference aims to initiate an open dialogue on past and present grievances, and explore ways forward for peaceful coexistence in the South Caucasus. It will explore alternatives to current conflict resolution strategies in the region, notably by analysing the role of national and international civil society movements as peacebuilding agents.
