One of the main missions of AIR Center is to conduct in-depth research on Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict and the ongoing occupation of internationally recognized territories of Azerbaijan for the government of Azerbaijan as well as local and international audiences. The Center aspires not only to inform and educate local and international audiences, but also to influence and facilitate policy-making processes on the conflict.
The research agenda and recommendations of AIR Center experts on the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict are based on three dimensions of Armenian studies. These dimensions are the Republic of Armenia, the Armenians in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan and the Armenian lobby abroad. The first dimension which is the Republic of Armenia covers foreign policy, domestic policy, military, economics, development and governance. In the first dimension of our research we follow, study and research all the economic, political, demographic, social developments and processes as well as public opinion in the Republic of Armenia on daily basis and prepare the necessary analysis and reports for the government and the public. In the second dimension of research, we follow and study the processes in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan. In the third dimension, we study the synergy between Armenian lobby abroad and the Republic of Armenia, how they influence each-other and work against the interests of Azerbaijan in different parts of the world. All these three dimensions are viewed, studied and examined through the national interests of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the ongoing occupation of the territories of Azerbaijan.
AIR Center also regularly submits reports, comprehensive analysis and research on the aforementioned aspects of Armenian studies to the government of Azerbaijan, as well as to general public to initiate wider discussions and raise awareness of different audiences.
In order to equip the expert and research community of Azerbaijan with in-depth knowledge and understanding of dynamics of the three dimensions of the Armenian studies as well as the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, AIR Center launched free, regular and professional Armenian language courses.
AIR Center also studies history and legal aspects of the conflict between the two countries, while also focusing on the international conflict resolution efforts. To contribute to peace-making initiatives in the future, AIR Center is engaged in the ongoing research and book projects in collaboration with scholars, researchers and experts from different institutions and continents such as on hate speech, conflicting narratives and myth creation that aggravate the deadlock in the resolution of the conflict and do not allow reconciliation of two societies. The experts of AIR Center regularly appear on the leading outlets as a part of informal debate on different aspects of the conflict. AIR Center also cooperates with local and international expert community on matters related to different aspects of Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict to initiate exchange of views and debates.
