EUCACIS Online Paper No. 7: Brussels and the Land of Fire: A brief overview of the development of the EU-Azerbaijan Relations

Daniel Weißen­rieder elabo­rates in his paper the history of the 25-year relationship of the EU with Azerbaijan which is charac­terized by common interests, but also by contentious issues such as corruption, the human rights situation, author­i­tarian trends and the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. Weißen­rieder also discusses the role of other actors in the region that need to be considered, like Russia, China, Turkey and Iran. The paper concludes that it needs to be seen to what extend and on which fields the currently negotiated new Partnership and Cooper­ation Agreement (PCA) will impact the relations and the situation in the EU’s most remote Eastern Partnership country.
