The case study analyses the mediation attempts into Nagorno Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.  The paradigmatic model consisting of three models - Rational Actor, Organizational, and Governmental Politics - borrowed from Allison (1971), is utilized to analyze the mediation attempts from three different viewpoints.  Two periods of conflict are analyzed - 1988-1991, when Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was an internal conflict of the Soviet Union, and 1992-1998, when, immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the conflict acquired an inter-state character.
