ODF: Kazakhstan - wind of change © mukhtarablyazov.org

We present to you an information booklet, devoted to the turbulent situation in the Republic of Kazakhstan – the largest country in Central Asia and the third largest economy in the CIS (after Russia and Ukraine).

Due to its significance, Kazakhstan has been one of the main areas of interest and activity for the Open Dialog Foundation for over three years. To most Europeans, Kazakhstan is still an unexplored country. The authorities, which are focused on the development of economic cooperation with the Western world, from which they personally receive significant financial benefit, make all possible efforts as well as employ various different means to alter this image. Their activity on the international stage and their concern for the carefully cultivated image of the country which is a democratic and stable partner in politics and business enables the European community to make an effective impact on the government of Kazakhstan.
