In international relations, a frozen conflict is a situation in which active armed conflict has been brought to an end, but no peace treaty or other political framework resolves the conflict to the satisfaction of the combatants.

The term has been commonly used for post-Soviet conflicts, but the term has often been applied to other perennial territorial disputes.[1][2][3]
