Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Q: What does the Karabakh Foundation do?

A: The Foundation serves as a dynamic facilitator and clearinghouse raising the public profile of Azerbaijan, its Karabakh region, and the Caucasus region in general. Main activities include preserving and disseminating cultural content via archival collecting, public programs, publications, exhibitions, speaking forums, international collaborations, scholarly exchange, artistic sponsorship, and related venues.

Q: Who are the Foundation’s audiences and partners?

A: Foundation audiences and partners include members of the general public, civic groups and institutions, students, scholars, academic groups and institutions, NGOs, and IGOs, in the United States and elsewhere.

The Foundation’s expanding ranks of founders and advisers include a blue-ribbon panel of academicians; scholars; civic and community leaders; and other authorities on Azerbaijani, Turkic, and Caucasus history, languages, and culture. Foundation leaders continually seek to partner with like-minded individuals and institutions.

Q: What are the Foundation’s desired outcomes?

A: The Karabakh Foundation strives to

* afford Americans and others firsthand—local and online—transformative experiences regarding the cultural, linguistic, historic, social, political, and global impact of Azerbaijan and its regions and Turkic cultures in general;

* inspire and support young scholars engaged in the study of Azerbaijani, Turkic, and/or Caucasus topics, including fostering academic exchanges between Azerbaijan and the United States;

* generate concrete and reliable information for media coverage related to the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan;

* solidify networks and platforms for East-West cultural exchange and Azerbaijani representation in major festivals and celebrations of the arts;

* stimulate increased travel to and from Azerbaijan;

* contribute to improved cultural diversity in U.S. school curricula and systems;

* build a body of English-translation Turkic-language scholarly works and disseminate these publications in book form and on the Web; and

* facilitate networking, including online social networking, among young Azerbaijani professionals with roots from the Karabakh region, as a means of reinforcing and sharing heritage.
