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.
