Abstract: The developments in and around Armenia after 2017 directly

and indirectly impacted the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, influencing both

negotiations and their perceptions.

The internal political processes of Armenia during 2018 (known as the

"Velvet Revolution") initiated active political changes, which, despite the

declared continuation of the course of Armenian foreign policy, brought

certain changes to the process of the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh

conflict and the developments surrounding it. The public perception of the

Nagorno-Karabakh conflict underwent certain transformations, and the

Armenian authorities came up with new emphases and approaches,

forming new tendencies in international perceptions and expectations.

The aim of this article is to examine the transformation of the Nagorno-

Karabakh conflict settlement process and its perception in the context of

modern political processes, both domestic and international, and to

highlight key tendencies.

Keywords: Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, political modernization,

democratization, Artsakh Republic, perceptions of the conflict.
