57,60 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume presents the results of the project “Kazakh – Its structure and function in post-Soviet Kazakhstan”. The project was unique in so far as for the first time the Kazakh language was the subject of a scientific project in a Western country. The aim was, on the one hand, to provide a snapshot of Kazakh as it is spoken and written in contemporary Kazakhstan, and, on the other, to analyze Kazakh in its sociocultural context. Linguists from Kazakhstan, Germany, China, Turkey and Sweden came together at the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen to discuss current issues on Kazakh. The papers presented in this context cover language planning, language contact, language and identity, latinization of the alphabet, terminology as well as varieties of Kazakh.

Aid in Transition
106,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is the one of the first to address aid effectiveness as a political and comparative economics question. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union and the transition of its republics to market structures and more representative forms of government, the European Commission has recognized the necessity of a closer economic cooperation with Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, the three largest economies of the former Soviet Union. This book suggests that the foreign aid of the European Union provided a set of reform incentives to post-Soviet planners. It created the grounds for the institutional and social transformation of the bureaucracy at both central and regional levels by integrating it into the aid allocation process. In Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, the observed subordination of NGOs to the developmental priorities of the bureaucracy occurred at the expense of diversity and political openness. Nevertheless, this reality led to the emergence of transnational sovereignty partnerships that reduced poverty for the general population and motivated both bureaucrats and entrepreneurs to cooperate. Empirical models alone are not sufficient to delineate all the aspects of principal-agent relationships in post-Soviet bureaucracies. This is why formal modeling and analysis of qualitative data are extremely useful. Evaluation reports indicate the problems and challenges faced by aid bureaucrats and suggest that the weakly institutionalized environments of Ukraine and Central Asia/Kazakhstan are less conducive to aid effectiveness than the heavily bureaucratized environment of Russia. The proposed incentives system for the allocation of foreign aid links EU foreign policy with bureaucratic decision-making and reflects the choice sets of the donor and the recipient. Multilevel definitions of aid effectiveness are provided in the course of the book chapters.

Does Oil Impede Democracy?
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Even if post-Soviet Kazakhstan has obtained animpressive economic growth and has democraticinstitutions formally present, democratization hasbeen rather unsuccessful, also when compared to quitea few other former communist states. To what degreemay the failure of democracy be ascribed toKazakhstan s economic reliance on oil revenues? Thisbook analyzes the Kazakh political transition sincethe time of independence in 1991 until 2007. Afeature that differentiates Kazakhstan from severalother former communist states is its significantpetroleum resources. Thus, it is interesting to seehow the growth in the extraction of these resourcessince 1991 may have influenced the country s economyand political developments. At the same time,Kazakhstan shares the problems of democratizationwith the other post-Soviet states located in CentralAsia and Caucasus. It is therefore necessary toconsider the region s cultural-historical legacieswhen attempting to explain the difficulties ofdemocratic progress in Kazakhstan. The analysisshould be useful to anyone interested in howresource-led economic growth influences the prospectsfor democracy in states without democratic traditions.
