September 27, 2017 1:15 pm - 2:45 pm
Fullerton College, Social Science Bldg. 1400, Room 1413
The Honorable Nasimi Aghayev Consul General of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Re-established in 1991, the Republic of Azerbaijan is founded on the democratic principles of equality, liberty and justice, which were exactly the principles guiding the first Azerbaijani Republic—the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (1918-1920). Being the first-ever secular democracy in the Muslim world, the ADR was ahead of its time in many ways. It extended equal voting rights to women much before many developed countries in the West, founded the first European-type university in Azerbaijan, as well as enacted many other progressive reforms. Today, Azerbaijan holds an exceptionally crucial position in the Caucasus. As an oil-rich nation experiencing rapid economic and social developments, it is an important ally of the United. This lecture, featuring the Honorable Nasimi Aghayev, the Consul General of the Republic of Azerbaijan, will explore the role of Azerbaijan in the world, its relationship with the U.S., and neighbors such as Iran, Armenia, Russia, and Turkey. Azerbaijan historical and cultural development as well as transformation shall be covered in this lecture. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session. This event is free and open to public!
