Secular Government and Civic Nationhood in Azerbaijan: History, Context, Implications

 

Tuesday, 22 November 2016, from 12 to 2 p.m.

 

Since its emergence as a nation in the early twentieth century, Azerbaijan’s state and society have both remained remarkably faithful to secular governance and a civic national conception. In recent years, the government has doubled down on these concepts, among other by designating 2016 the year of multiculturalism. But what do these terms mean in practice? What are the policies developed by the Azerbaijani government, and what reactions have emerged in society? How does Azerbaijan compare to countries in its neighborhood, and what are the implications for the West?

Speakers:

Svante E. Cornell, Director, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute
 
Moderator:  Mamuka Tsereteli, Research Director, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute
