Carnegie Endowment for International Peace


Ambassador Carey Cavanaugh and Jeff Goldstein


Thomas de Waal

Ten years ago, the United States made its biggest effort to resolve the protracted Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorny Karabakh at talks in Key West, Florida. Since then, efforts to forge a lasting peace have failed and 2010 was one of the most difficult years in the peace process. Some experts predict a slide toward renewed conflict. Ambassador Carey Cavanaugh, the lead U.S. negotiator at the Key West talks; Jeff Goldstein, a former deputy U.S. negotiator; and Thomas de Waal, author of the Black Garden: Armenia and Azerbaijan Through Peace and War, will review the situation around Nagorny Karabakh.





Ambassador Carey Cavanaugh is the director of the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky. In his 22-year diplomatic career with the U.S. Department of State, Cavanaugh focused on conflict resolution, political-military affairs, and humanitarian issues. He spearheaded or helped advance peace efforts involving Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Tajikistan, and Turkey. In 2002 Cavanaugh served as ambassador/special negotiator responsible for conflicts in Eurasia, and as the U.S. co-chairman of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Minsk Group.Jeff Goldstein is the senior policy analyst for Eurasia at the Open Society Foundations. Based in Washington D.C., Goldstein is responsible for providing advocacy support for the organization’s programs in the former Soviet Union and Mongolia. Previously, Goldstein was senior program manager for Central Asia and the Caucasus at Freedom House. A 25-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service, he served in the American embassies in Warsaw, Seoul, Moscow, and Tallinn, and as deputy to the U.S. special envoy working to help resolve “frozen conflicts” in the Caucasus and Moldova.


Thomas de Waal, a senior associate with the Russia and Eurasia Program at the Carnegie Endowment, is an acknowledged expert on the unresolved conflicts of the South Caucasus: Abkhazia, Nagorny-Karabakh, and South Ossetia. From 2002 to 2009 he worked as an analyst and project manager on the conflicts in the South Caucasus for the London-based NGOs Conciliation Resources and the Institute for War and Peace Reporting.
