Unrest in Kazakhstan: Implications for National and International Security
An Alumni Insight Event
What are the consequences of the Kazakhstan’s January 2022 unrest? Protests over gas prices have quickly escalated into unprecedented clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters in the Central Asian country. The crisis caused hundreds of deaths and led to the Collective Security Treaty Organization’s (CSTO) first-ever intervention in one of its member states. The repercussions of the events threaten to affect in the long term the entire region.
This first Alumni Insight of the year will discuss the implications for national and international security.
