Landlocked among the Caucasus mountains, Armenia is on the historic Great Silk Road that linked Asia and Europe. The country regained its independence after the collapse of the USSR, but its post-independence history has been marred by conflict with Azerbaijan over ownership of the Nagorno-Karabakh territory. Armenia has taken steps to address human rights concerns over its human rights record, but a number of serious violations of children’s rights continue in the country, including with regards to the justice system and the abuse of children in child care centres and orphanages.
