on foreign policy issues conducted in these republics in 1997. The monograph
has a quite substantial section on
Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, which might be useful for all
scholars conducting a research on internal and external
policies of the Central Asian Republics.

'Foreign Policy Formation in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and
Uzbekistan: Perceptions and Expert Assessments,'
Rafis Abazov, 'Foreign Policy Formation in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and
Uzbekistan: Perceptions and Expert Assessments,' CERC Working Papers, no. 4
(2000), 62 pp. Aus$9.50 (Australian orders), Aus$12.00 (international
orders) (includes postage and GST).
This paper assesses the perceptions of foreign policy issues by Central
Asian foreign policy experts and practitioners, focusing on the
decision-making process in the region. The author argues that there has been
a considerable shift in the policy-making proces,s as the political and
economic base of the former Soviet nomenklatura has been eroded and as
political institutions have been restructured following independence.
The paper provides a brief historical review of social and political changes
in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan in the late twentieth century, as
well as an overview of the major variables affecting post-Soviet foreign
policy formation in the Central Asian Republics. It includes presentation of
the findings of a 1999 survey conducted on this issue among foreign policy
experts and policy practitioners in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.
