Practical Information

Armenians and Azerbaijanis have been on the threshold of all-out war since 27 September 2020. The object of contention is the self-proclaimed Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is the subject of ongoing mediation by the OSCE and the Minsk Group co-chaired by France, Russia and the United States.

What impact can this war have on this region close to Russia and Turkey and also on a global scale as the UN Security Council calls on the parties to implement an immediate ceasefire?

Gaïdz Minassian will discuss this burning topic issue during a lecture to be followed by a signing session for his new book Les sentiers de la victoire, peut-on encore gagner une guerre? (The paths to victory, can one still win a war?)

A journalist at Le Monde and a teacher at Sciences Po Paris, Gaïdz Minassian is the author of several books on the Caucasus and international relations, including Zones Grises, quand les Etats perdent le contrôle (Gray Zones, when states lose control), Autrement, 2011 and Les sentiers de la victoire, peut-on encore gagner une guerre?, Passés Composés, 2020.
