Since mid-December, 120,000 people in Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh have been under blockade. The only land connection between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh, the Lachin Corridor, was blocked by Azerbaijan. The blockade’s impacts have reverberated widely, impacting access to food, medicine, gas, electricity, the internet and more.

The Promise Institute for Human Rights holds a conversation about the ongoing situation on the ground, the relevant international legal framework, and what might happen moving forward.
