For several years, the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program has focused its attention on the process of reform across Central Asia and the Caucasus. This online forum marks the publication of a study of human rights reforms in Kazakhstan. The country’s high ambitions for its place in the world demanded a serious re-consideration of the country’s human rights record, something President Tokayev has embarked upon in recent years. Dr. Svante Cornell will present his research on the matter, documenting Kazakhstan’s progress in this regard as well as challenges in the implementation of reforms.

Speakers:

Svante E. Cornell, Director, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program

Amb. George Krol, Associate, Harvard University Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Former United States Ambassador to Kazakhstan

Moderator:

S. Frederick Starr, Chairman, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program
