Elections in Azerbaijan and U.S. Interests in the Caspian
Recorded on October 27, 2005
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
The upcoming parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are being
closely followed in both Washington and Europe. Issues such as
economic development, the role of oil and gas industry in national
economy, civil society, corruption, geopolitical challenges,
including the still-unresolved Karabakh conflict, Iran, and the
rising profile of radical Islamic ideology in the region continue
to confound policy makers around the world.
What can the U.S. expect after this round of Parliamentary
elections in Azerbaijan? What are U.S. interests in the Caspian?
Please join us as our distinguished panel addresses these questions
and more on the 27th of October.
