Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Access to education should not be hampered by conflicts
- The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has had a negative impact on the affected population’s access to education. In some cases, residents of communities located in exposed areas do not send their children to school for just one very basic, yet significant, reason – it is not safe there.
- Rasim Aliyev, director of Alibayli village school in Tovuz district of Azerbaijan, said, “As a result of the conflict the number of students decreased drastically. We used to have double the number of students attending in two different shifts. Now we have just slightly above 100.”
