Kazakhstan children

Main problems faced by children in Kazakstan: The prevention of abuse and sexual abuse remains insufficient and lacks professional attention. Such punishments are tolerated in foster homes, military schools and in the workplace. Schools are the only place in which corporal punishment is prohibited. Although mistreatment is becoming rarer, it remains a regular occurrence in boarding schools, foster homes, prisons and detention centres. Furthermore, children who are victims of such violence do not have easy access to adequate complaint mechanisms…

Kazakhstan trade with China

Before making his way to Russia for the Victory Day celebrations, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a one-day stopover in neighboring Kazakhstan. The Central Asian state is of growing diplomatic and strategic importance to China, a fact reflected in Beijing’s attention on the region in recent years. Kazakhstan is crucial to getting China’s Silk Road Economic Belt off the ground, which is why Xi first announced that initiative during a visit to Astana in September 2013. Since then, Kazakhstan has become a major site of Chinese investment. During…

Of the 11 border crossings between Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, six are currently closed, Kyrgyz customs agents say, and Kazakhstan has imposed tightened restrictions at two more. Fifteen kilometers east at Ak-Tilek, a simple printed sign taped to a shuttered gate indicates that this key freight crossing is closed.
