WoE Wither Kazakhstan with Professor Alexey Malashenko, the Chief Researcher at Dialogue of the Civilizations

By bne IntelliNews April 10, 2019

Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev surprised everyone and no one by stepping down from office last month after nearly three decades in power. We are now in a transition phases where Nazarbayev eases himself out of office, but clearly he intends to remain fully in control of the process.

On April 9 a snap presidential election was called that will be held in June and is likely to confirm interim Kazakh president Kassym-Jomart Tokayev as the permanent head of the country.

What is not clear is what happens next? Will be continue Kazakhstan’s policies? Will he strike out in a new direction? Will he go after regional integration?

bne IntelliNews editor-in-chief Ben Aris talks to Professor Alexey Malashenko, the Chief Researcher at Dialogue of the Civilizations in Moscow, about that could happen next.
