А. А. Габриелян

Abstract


The perspectives of development of a young and independent state of Nagorno Kara-bakh (the Republic of Artsakh) are considered in the work simultaneously taking into account the geopolitical realities of the South Caucasian region. Special attention is given to the examination of the current situation in Nagorno-Karabakh conflict from the tempo¬ral and diagnostic perspectives, which characterise the nature and specifics of the conflict. The research methodology is based on «structural diagnosis» of distinctive features of the given conflict. Regardless of unrecognized status of the state and de facto continuing war with the neighbouring Republic of Azerbaijan, Artsakh demonstrates impressive social and political development. For the sake of preservation of aimed tendency, the Republic has to position itself louder and clearer at the international stage, especially taking into consideration the geopolitical changes in the region, as well as optimistic and pessimistic scenario of development of situation in relationship with Azerbaijan. At the same time, the analysis of the regional situation allows differenciating the main reasons of tension, as well as mentioning those conditions under which the unrecognised state of Artsakh could cooperate with other countries via those recommendations, presented in the author's work.
