Associate Professor of International Law Department at L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian University Dr Beibit Shangirbayeva who holds Candidate’s Degree in Jurisprudence, PhD degree from Italian Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies is a first Kazakh female who published a monograph in English in the renowned world publisher Wolters Kluwer. The monograph was published this summer and belongs to the famous series of multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws.

This very useful analysis of constitutional law in Kazakhstan provides essential information on the country’s sources of constitutional law, its form of government, and its administrative structure. Lawyers who handle transnational matters will appreciate the clarifications of particular terminology and its application. Throughout the book, the treatment emphasizes the specific points at which constitutional law affects the interpretation of legal rules and procedure.  

Thorough coverage by a local expert fully describes the political system, the historical background, the role of treaties, legislation, jurisprudence, and administrative regulations. The discussion of the form and structure of government outlines its legal status, the jurisdiction and workings of the central state organs, the subdivisions of the state, its decentralized authorities, and concepts of citizenship. Special issues include the legal position of aliens, foreign relations, taxing and spending powers, emergency laws, the power of the military, and the constitutional relationship between religion and state. Details are presented in such a way that readers who are unfamiliar with specific terms and concepts in varying contexts will fully grasp their meaning and significance.

Its succinct yet scholarly nature, as well as the practical quality of the information it provides, make this book a valuable time-saving tool for both practising and academic jurists. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Kazakhstan will welcome this guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative constitutional law.

This work is a result of international experience and a rich academic background of Beibit Yunisovna. Dr Shangirbayeva had research trainings and postdoc studies at the University of Cambridge (Great Britain), the University of Lund (Sweden) and the Univversity of Nanterre-Paris (France), and had an internship at the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva (Switzerland). Beibit speaks fluently English, and knows Italian and French languages.

In the monograph author expresses sincere gratitude to Full-professor of International Law at Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies Andrea de Guttry and Professor of the University of Cambridge (UK) Siddharth Saxena, and other specialists.

In future, this monograph will play a significant role in attracting forewing investments to Kazakhstan.
