Elements Of Azerbaijan Foreign Policy
The purpose of this preliminary work is three-fold: First, to identify the major trends in the foreign relations of Azerbaijan toward both global and regional powers active in the Caucasus area; second, to explain a variety of international factors (external variables) that have constrained and conditioned the Caucasus regional structure. In this regard, external variables are categorized depending on their original nature into two groups: global and regional. The former category includes global players such as Washington and Moscow, while the latter category involves two rival regional players, namely Ankara and Tehran. Finally, a number of domestic factors (internal variables) are discussed-including leadership, economic conditions, and political stability that influence Baku's foreign policy.
