Baku, March 1, AZERTAC

A presentation of the book “Resettling the Borderlands and Ethnic Conflict in the South Caucasus” by chairman of the board of directors of Center for International Relations Analysis Farid Shafiyev has been held at Canada`s Toronto and Carleton Universities.

The book was published in the Canadian authoritative McGill-Queen`s University Press.

The book reflects study of the Imperial Russian and Soviet resettlement policies in the South Caucasus and their impact on the ethnic conflict.

Exploring the policies and implementations of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, Resettling the Borderlands investigates the nexus between imperial practices, foreign policy, religion, and ethnic conflicts. Taking a comparative approach, Farid Shafiyev looks at the most active phases of resettlement of Armenians in Karabakh and Irevan khanates, reasons of the ethnic conflicts at the beginning of the 20th century, and deportation of Azerbaijanis from Armenia in 1948-1953.
