Freedom House The international organization Freedom House has never
recognized the self-declared Nagorno-Karabakh republic.

After protests from the Azerbaijani public, Freedom House has
corrected the mistake on its Freedom in the World Map 2009, which
showed Nagorno-Karabakh under joint rule by Azerbaijan and Armenia.

The organization recently published a new Freedom in the World Map,
where Nagorno-Karabakh is shown as Azerbaijani territory.

A representative of Freedom House told APA that they had never
recognized separatist Nagorno-Karabakh.

Despite that the 2010 Freedom Report still shows Nagorno-Karabakh as
"partly free".

Freedom House’s new map can be found here.
