More than 120,000 Armenian civilians in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh are facing a dire situation, with some warning of an impeding genocide.
On 7 August, former International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo published a report asserting that “the blockade of the Lachin corridor by the Azerbaijani security forces impeding access to any food, medical supplies, and other essentials should be considered a Genocide” under Article II (c) of the Genocide Convention.
The event will give an outline of the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh, evaluate the violations of international law by Azerbaijan, and discuss the international responsibility to protect the Armenians.
