The Republic of Azerbaijan proclaimed its independence in 1991, shortly before the Dissolution of the Soviet Union. Azerbaijan’s economy has since prospered mostly due to a large oil and gas industry. But unresolved problems include high levels of corruption and the weakness of state institutions. Despite a relatively stable economic situation, the country’s wealth, does not reach the majority of the population. Many families still live in poor conditions and wage a daily struggle for the well-being of their children. Additionally, Azerbaijan has one of the largest concentrations of internally displaced persons (IDPs) per capita in the world. As a result of the war in 1991, some 800,000 people fled the conflict area in Nagorno-Karabakh. The second war in 2020 has further complicated the situation of IDPs.
