Profile of Internal Displacement: Azerbaijan

The large number of internally displaced persons in Azerbaijan has been the most visible sign of the unsettled conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh. Almost 10 years after the ceasefire agreement in 1994, more than 570,000 persons displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding districts under Armenian occupation continue to live in very precarious conditions, compared to the rest of the population.
