Although it lasted only forty-four days, the Nagorno-Karabakh war of 2020 was one of the deadliest escalations in the region. It resulted in heavy loss of property and lives, both on Azerbaijan’s and Armenia’s side, as well as saw the use of modern weaponry and technology. Sagnik Sarkar in his paper
analyses the Nagorno-Karabakh Peace Deal (2020) and seeks to find out how this deal will shape the future of the region, and whether this deal, which could not be penned down after almost three decades of negotiations, would really end violence. He also tries to highlight what will be the future of Turkey and Russia, two of the most important regional players in the region, post this deal. Sagnik also attempts to answer two questions, whether the deal would mark and end of ‘Nagorno-Karabakh,’ and whether Transcaucasia is gradually transforming into a ‘post-post Soviet’ space.
