HAUT-KARABAGH : GÉOPOLITIQUE D'UN CONFLIT SANS FIN - NAGORNO-KARABAGH : POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY OF AN ENDLESS CONFLICT

Abstract : The South Caucasus or Transcaucasus is a region where diversified geography combined with historical heritage, gives a population spread out in varied ethnic groups and attached to different religious concepts. At the heart of this South-Caucasus, the geopolitical decisions of the Soviet era's first first years have, against the will of the majority of the inhabitants, consigned the Nagorno-Karabagh to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Azarbaidjan. Since, tensions with Ba-kou authorities have not ceased. At the end of the '80s, things took a violent turn that has made of it a milestone in the programmed end of a USSR that hadn't suc-ceeded in creating the homo sovieticus that was to be substituted for all nationali-ties and persuasions. The violence opened onto a war (1991-1994) lost by Azarbaïdjan. The cease-fire that put an end to hostilities is not at all transformable into a peace treaty. In this context, the Nagorno-Karabagh region, whose geogra-phical characteristics it is convenient to specify first of all, finds itself thrice en-clave, a situation that can only end with the end of the conflict. But is this perspec-tive at all probable?
