Since 1997 the NGO and think-tank, The Humanitarian Research Public Opinion, has promoted democratic development and the protection of human rights in Azerbaijan. One of their priorities is to encourage civic activism and the sustainable development of civil society. PUHR provides analysis and facilitates discussions about the Karabakh war. It works with vulnerable and marginalised groups including ex-combatants and displaced persons.
Conciliation Resources works with PUHR to support a network of organisations from across Azerbaijan dealing with issues of displacement and to implement an outreach programme of the Dialogue Through Film series.
