Chapter Summary

Kazakhstan has experienced the fall of many eras and civilizations, the most poignant of which was the separation from its old nomadic identity. The last trauma was only very recently, in 1991, and it still resonates painfully in the hearts of those who were raised on ideas of equality, justice and brotherhood. The process of economic transformation in Kazakhstan is a graphic example of the difficulties that have to be overcome on the way to a market economy, even for newly-independent states with the richest of resources. Economic reforms, implemented under the leadership of President Nursultan Nazarbaev, have led to serious sociopolitical changes. The only departure in terms of strengthening the unity of Kazakhstan and preserving its political structure was the decision to combine a unitary government with a powerful presidency.

Keywords: economic reforms; Kazakhstan; market economy; President Nursultan Nazarbaev
