Since ancient times, political leaders have known that the most ideal way to win a conflict is to subdue one's enemy without the use of force. They have also realized that external conflicts are a convenient method to distract the citizenry from socio-political or economic ills. 

For 20 years, a ceasefire has held between Azerbaijan and Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh), joined by Armenia. Though dozens of soldiers from both sides are killed every year as a result of ceasefire violations, the most dynamic facet of the conflict in recent years has been the non-kinetic (information, psychological, and political warfare) aspect of the war.

Dr. Dilanyan and Mr. Khlgatyan will outline the various methods and discuss the specific examples that the opposing parties have used to further their strategic aims. And ultimately what effect these agitations have upon the conflict resolution process spearheaded by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairman countries (USA, France, Russia).

Vahan Dilanyan, Ph.D. is a recognized expert on Armenian foreign policy, conflict resolution and regional security, with a focus on the FSU territory and the Middle East. He serves as the Chairman of the Political Developments Research Center (PDRC), a think-tank based in Yerevan.

Dr. Dilanyan is the author of numerous articles published in popular media and professional publications and a frequent public speaker around the country and abroad.

Vilen Khlgatyan is Vice-Chairman of Political Developments Research Center (PDRC), a virtual think tank based in Yerevan, Armenia. He attended Webster University, where he double majored in International Relations and International Business, and graduated in Spring 2010. He spent a semester studying in Vienna, Austria, where he also attended OPEC and OSCE workshops.

In 2013, he graduated from The Institute of World Politics, where his studies focused on national security and the geopolitics of energy. He wrote his honors thesis on the "Geopolitics of Energy in the South Caucasus."

Mr. Khlgatyan was a campaign staffer for Congressman Russ Carnahan of Missouri's 3rd District, who sat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
