Narratives war: an analysis of information security threats in Kazakhstan

Over the past month, the information war on the territory of Kazakhstan from Russia and China has intensified. The Kremlin once again reminded of the revival of the USSR, and an article appeared on Chinese resources that Kazakhstan is historically part of their territory. Disputes about the status of the Russian language have resumed. At the same time, both states impose a thesis on the crisis of democratic values, which did not stand the test of strength in a pandemic.

How is the information agenda formed, what are the methods and instruments of influence, does Kazakhstan, like other post-Soviet countries, have its own information policy capable of withstanding this "hybrid" war? These and other issues are discussed with the Kazakh expert Aydar Amrebayev and Head of the Asia Pacific Division of the CIAAC Yuriy Poyta in the think tank program of the analytical journal exclusive.kz.
