The South Caucasus: Nationalism, Conflict and Minorities

17 July 2002

It is ten years since the former Soviet Union Republics of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia became independent states of the South Caucasus. This report sheds light on a region which is under-reported and little understood and describes the conditions for majorities and minorities, encouraging them to work together to overcome their differences.

Please note that the terminology in the fields of minority rights and indigenous peoples’ rights has changed over time. MRG strives to reflect these changes as well as respect the right to self-identification on the part of minorities and indigenous peoples. At the same time, after over 50 years’ work, we know that our archive is of considerable interest to activists and researchers. Therefore, we make available as much of our back catalogue as possible, while being aware that the language used may not reflect current thinking on these issues.
