The KAZGUU Center for International Law (KCIL) is a newly established research center focusing on international law. KCIL was created in October 2016 as part of internationalization strategy of KAZGUU University in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is a dynamic country with active participation across different platforms of international law and international organizations. The Presidency of OSCE and the recent election of Kazakhstan as a temporary member of UNSC for period 2017-2018 are examples of Kazakhstan’s active standing in international arena. Kazakhstan is also among the newest WTO members.

KCIL will rely on this positive dynamics to develop strong research and expertise potential in different disciplines of international law. The objective of KCIL is to become the hub for interdisciplinary research in the field of international law in Astana. It aims to function as a bridge between international legal scholarship and Kazakh international law community.

KCIL’s team is composed of researchers with expertise in public and private international law. KCIL members are also involved in teaching of international law at KAZGUU High School of Law and KAZGUU Institute for Postgraduate Education and International Relations. KCIIL works in close association with the Zimanov Academy at KAZGUU and with the department of international law of KAZGUU’s School of Law.
