Socio-economic Consequences of the Karabakh Conflict

The perceptions of peace and war and the influence of the Karabakh conflict have been focal points of Socioscope’s recent research studies. These research studies have, in various ways, addressed the socio-economic impacts of the conflict and raised issues related to inequality and poverty. Discussions and analyses regarding the socio-economic aftermath of wars are not widespread and often lack comprehensive study. Multiple research studies, including those conducted by Socioscope, indicate that socio-economic concerns such as poverty and unemployment persist as primary issues affecting the people of Armenia. Social inequalities notably rise during wars and in the subsequent years. However, the socio-economic impact of the Karabakh conflict hasn’t been properly studied during this period.

The research-based analytical article series, titled “Socio-economic Consequences of the Karabakh Conflict,” aims to comprehensively explore the interconnection between the conflict’s socio-economic impact and concepts such as peace, stability, poverty, and social inequality through collaboration with diverse specialists and an interdisciplinary approach. Additionally, it seeks to analyze how these factors directly or indirectly influence economic growth and development.

The studies, conducted as part of this article series, took place between July and September 2023. Thus these studies do not cover the events related to the large-scale attack by Azerbaijan on Nagorno-Karabakh on September 19 and the forced displacement of the Armenian population from Nagorno-Karabakh.
