On August 30th, Kazakhstan celebrated one of the country’s most important holidays—Constitution Day, which commemorates the adoption of the 1995 constitution which confirmed the Kazakh people’s determination to become a democratic and secular republic.

This year’s celebration will undoubtedly be particularly festive, given that Kazakhstan is also marked 30 years of independence—a milestone that many of its fellow post-Soviet states are sharing. Uzbekistan marked its 30th Independence Day on September 1st, while Estonia also commemorated three decades as an independent country this month.
