Opinion | Religious freedom is more limited than ever in the ‘new Azerbaijan’

Despite the instrumentalisation of religion during the war, hopes of greater religious freedom emerging in its wake are fast fading.

Opinion | Iran, a loser in the Second Nagorno-Karabakh War?

Despite surface appearances, Iran may have much to gain in the new post-war political order in the South Caucasus.

Opinion | Are Azerbaijan and Turkey moving towards ‘one nation, one state’? 

But could the commonly expressed adage of one nation two states be transforming into an even closer union?

Fierce, independent journalism

Let’s be honest, the media situation in the Caucasus is grim. Every day we are accused of ‘serving the enemy’ whoever that enemy may be. Our journalists have been harassed, arrested, beaten, and exiled. But nevertheless, we persevere. For us this is a labour of love. Unfortunately, we cannot run OC Media on love alone, journalism is expensive and funding is scarce. Our sole mission is to serve the interests of all peoples of the region. You can support us today for as little as $1 a month and join us in the fight for a better Caucasus.
