Attitudes
 
The presence of people from other ethnic groups is a cause of insecurity:
 
“In Armenia and Azerbaijan, ethnic minorities do not make up a majority of any region and as a result are hardly perceived as a separate group.”
 
The presence of people from other ethnic groups increases unemployment:
 
“The existence of organizations that protect and lobby the rights of minorities often increases the sense of injustice among the majority, which think that their rights are not equally being protected.”
 
People from other ethnic groups are not enriching the cultural life of our country:
 
“In Armenia and Azerbaijan, the number of minorities is so small that most people are not aware of their existence.”
In Armenia and Azerbaijan, the number of minorities is smaller compared to Georgia, as well as issues minorities face are less visible, therefore often majority is not aware of their existence.
