Long Abstract

When Kazakhstan's Nursultan Nazarbayev resigned from the office of the presidency in March 2019, it surprised observers and Kazakhstanis alike. Would the Tokayev presidency usher in changes? Did the process by which this occurred suggest a new type of authoritarian succession? Would Kazakhstan's role in the region shift? What were the prospects for dynastic succession? In this roundtable, we take stock of what Kazakhstan has become since Nazarbayev.
