  REPRESENTATION OF AN UNRECOGNISED STATE
    UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW - EXAMPLE OF
              THE REPUBLIC OF ARTSAKH


Abstract: Since the late 80s, the Armenian inhabitants of Nagorno-
Karabakh, a region situated within the internationally recognised borders
of the Republic of Azerbaijan, have been struggling for creating their own
state - the Republic of Artsakh. The fact that this self-proclaimed entity
was not recognised by any of the international actors has not prevented
it from constantly committing to intervene on the international plane,
separately from Yerevan and Baku. For instance, it is the co-signatory
of the Bishkek Protocol. On the other hand, it was refused participation
in the core undertaking of the international community designed to settle
the dispute - the OSCE Minsk process.
     The aforementioned situation raises the question as to who shall
act as a legal representative of this quasi-state on the international plane?
Azerbaijan, as the official centre of authority within the region, Armenia,
or rather the separatist government of Nagorno-Karabakh?

Keywords: Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Armenia, Azerbaijan, legal
representatives
