Status issues are also controversial in the Karabakh peace process, in which people living in NK today have no formal presence. Those displaced from NK are amongst the most marginalised, yet most directly affected, groups outside of the process.
While acknowledging the many conflicting perspectives on the issue, this discussion paper charts possible areas of convergence between Armenian and Azerbaijani interests, around which further dialogue might be conducted.
Issues around status, both of disputed territory and political actors in the process to resolve the conflict, demand engagement in order to explore alternatives to the current deadlock and mitigate their destructive impact for dialogue on other issues.
