  • Kazakhstan's Defense Policy: An Assessment of the Trends

    February 11, 2009

    Authored by Mr. Roger N. McDermott.
    United States defense assistance programs have had mixed results in the promotion of defense reform in Kazakhstan, partly as a result of internal factors ranging from corruption to inadequate resource management and geopolitical limitations placed on how far Astana can cooperate with either the Unied States or NATO taking account of its close political relations with both Russia and China. New, deeper and more closely monitored programs are needed, and, combined with multilateral cooperative initiatives, should be a matter of urgent priority, otherwise, such programs will underperform and languish in the repetition of the misjudgements of the past.
