Saint Paul University Student Association (SPUSA) and Academic Club for Peace-Conflict Studies (ACPCS) are pleased to host Dr. Babak Rezvani at the monthly seminar on Theoretical & Practical Aspects of Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention:

Caucasus & Ethnopolitical Conflicts; Nagorno-Karabakh

Dr. Babak Rezvani
Chairman of Association for the Study of EthnoGeoPolitics – Netherlands

Josh Nadeau
Student of MA Conflict Studies – Saint Paul University, Canada

June 3, 2021 – at 11 a.m

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is often wrongfully seen as another post-Soviet frozen conflict in both academia and in policy-making circles. Although the conflict is indeed a product of specific preconditions and deliberate Soviet policies, it differs from other protracted ethnopolitical conflicts like in Georgia or Moldova. Gaining a deeper understanding of how this conflict came about, and its underlying causes is essential for understanding the current episode of fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan. During this seminar, Dr. Rezvani will share his thoughts about the trends of ethnopolitical conflicts in the region with us.
The ACPCS aims to launch these monthly seminars that bring together high-level Canadian peacemakers, policymakers, diplomats, philosophers of peace, conflict studies experts, and journalists to engage in constructive discussions around current and emerging peace and conflict issues in the globe.
The seminars will be in a fully virtual environment to accommodate COVID guidelines:
