Dr. Armen Mazmanyan compares Nagorno Karabakh’s right to Self Determination and the principle of Territorial Integrity pursued by Azerbaijani diplomacy and why Azerbaijani claims to territorial integrity are losing ground on account of recent developments. Produced by Civilitas Foundation. As regards Nagorno Karabagh / Arsakh, the people living there seek self-determination, while Azerbaijan relies on the territorial integrity principle (hence talks of occupied territory). Any legitimacy for Azerbaijan’s position is weakend Dr. Mazmanyan says by:
• its focus on territory not people,
• violation of norms of human rights law (eg shelling civilian areas),
• its officially sanctioned and endorsed policy of racism.
