There is a fragile security situation for those living along Armenia's border with Azerbaijan after the 2020 truce ending the six-week war between the countries in and around Nagorno-Karabakh, broke down several times with Azerbaijan making incursions into Nagorno Karabakh and Armenia. Amid growing insecurity from the unresolved conflict, the political opposition blames Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and demands his resignation.

Authorities pursue ambitious judicial, police, and constitutional reforms, but face civil society criticism over the consistency and progress of the reforms. Human rights problems include ill-treatment by law enforcement, interference with freedom of assembly, domestic violence, discrimination against people with disabilities, and violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
