Kazakhstan Initiative Brief No. 2, February 2014
Kazakhstan has taken the regional leadership on soft security issues in the whole Central Asian region. On February 4, 2014, the Central Asia Program at the George Washington University organized a conference exploring the region’s main soft security issues: water management, regulating migrations and refugees flows, developing disaster preparedness and reaction to climate change. It brought together scholars and experts to offer a full panorama of the soft security situation and the way Kazakhstan can address these challenges.
