"The Central-Asia Caucasus Institute"
Basic Principles for the Rehabilitation of Azerbaijan’s Post-Conflict Territories
For all the debate and discussion of the "Karabakh problem," the question of what would or should happen if it is ever resolved has been totally ignored. Now a team of independent experts from Azerbaijan led by Dr. Eldar Ismailov has closely analyzed a key aspect of this issue: physical and institutional reconstruction. Building on World Bank studies of post-conflict situations, they have published a volume presenting Basic Principles for the Rehabilitation of Azerbaijan’s Post-conflict Territories (221 pp., English/Azeri/and Russian eds., Baku, 2010). Their study focuses solely on the post-conflict phase, and does not consider whether, when, or how, the present conflict is resolved. The purpose of this Forum is to present the authors of this innovative study and to foster discussion between them, leading experts and interested parties. Comments on the study will be offered by Dr. Jahangir Hajiyev, Chairman of the International Bank of Azerbaijan who also co-chairs the Britain-Azerbaijan Business Council.
