Abstract

This paper discusses the plight of the ethnic Armenians living in the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR), who sought refuge in Armenia as a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Seventeen years have passed since 330,000 of the 400,000 ethnic Armenians living in the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) sought refuge in Armenia as a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. A significant number more left for Russia between 1988 and 1993. To date, none of the ethnic Armenians who fled their homes in Azerbaijan have been able to return to enjoy their property. Following their forced displacement from Azerbaijan, some ethnic Armenians tried to restore their violated property and other rights in the Azerbaijani domestic courts. However, none of these efforts were successful and The UN Committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) has held that their property is still being illegally occupied and used by Azeris while the real owners of these houses are prevented from returning to their homes.
