To Limit Russian Meddling, Astana Entices Kazakhs from Abroad

By Joanna Lillis

ASTANA, Kazakhstan, July 23, 2014 (EurasiaNetDotOrg) --- Astana is rebooting a program to lure ethnic Kazakhs living abroad to move to Kazakhstan. Observers believe Astana's revived interest in the program is motivated by a desire to limit Russia's potential to meddle in Kazakhstani affairs.

Two years ago, the government suspended the "oralman," or returnee, program in the aftermath of fatal unrest in western Kazakhstan. The tumult was attributed in part to social discontent stemming from the mismanaged migration of Kazakhs from abroad.
