Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia organizes a presentation within the
Work in Progress series.
WiP: The Refugee Card: Refugees and IDPs in the South Caucasus as key factors of conflict resolution
Presenter Péter Pál Kránitz, Pázmány Péter Catholic University
Location CRRC-Armenia, 1 Alex Manoogian Str., Library bld., 6rd Floor, Room 602
The presentation will outline the important role that the question of refugees and internally displaced people, more precisely, their possible future repatriation represents during the course of conflict resolution in the South Caucasus. The title–The Refugee Card–is intentionally provocative, inasmuch as it reflects the consistent endeavor of two South Caucasian states–Azerbaijan and Georgia–to keep the question of Azeri and Georgian IDPs residing in their territories warm, to be able to play the refugee card during negotiations between the opposing parties of these (semi-) frozen conflicts. Kránitz will discuss the legal framework of the Post-Soviet refugee-crisis and highlight different aspects of the issue.
Péter Pál Kránitz has been researching in Armenia since September 2014, as an Outgoing Scholar of the International Visegrad Foundation. As a PhD student of Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest, Hungary, he writes his dissertation on the history of Armenian refugees in East- and East-Central Europe between the two World Wars.
