Collection of war threat statements by Azerbaijani officials

Azerbaijani officials, mainly the President Ilham Aliyev, have been consistent in their war rhetoric with regard to Nagorno-Karabakh, frequently threatening to take the region back by military force. The document you can find below is a collection of their war threats and hate speeches. The first version was presented by EuFoA in 2015. We have recently updated the collection and now it goes until April 30 2017. The articles are organised in a chronological way, with the first one being the most recent.

Armenia 2017: An introduction to the party-political landscape

EuFoA publishes new guide Armenia 2017: An introduction to the party-political landscape

 

For five years, the first version of this guide was used extensively by EU officials, election observers, international academics and journalists. Several of these asked us to prepare a new version for the upcoming elections, reflecting all the recent changes. Answering that demand, we are now providing a brief summary for each Armenian political force running in the elections of 2 April, including the new formations, providing:

 

  • key background on the party’s (or bloc’s) history, composition and leaders
  • party program, with a focus on economic policy and foreign policy
  • a special view on EU policies and affiliations

 

The guide also offers a short and understandable introduction to the new Armenian electoral code, which in itself is quite complex but also an exciting change over the past semi-proportional system.
