Settlement of the Conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh
International Alert has launched a publication as part of the joint media project ‘Unheard Voices’, the initiative facilitated by International Alert that brings together journalists from major mainstream and independent media outlets in Azerbaijan, Armenia and Nagorny Karabakh. In the project the journalists profile the lives of ordinary people in the communities most affected by the ongoing conflict, highlighting the human cost of the conflict and giving a much-needed alternative to the widespread pro-war rhetoric.

The aim of the project was to capture faces of different people that vividly represent the human side of the conflict, where each individual remains above all a human being with his or her right to be what they are, wherever they live, with dignity and in peace.
