PARTING SHOT

The Journal’s latest episode of our The Explainer podcast takes a look inside the unrest in Kazakhstan.

Our team takes a closer look at the reasons for the unrest and the potential impact for the region and the world in general.

To get the full story, we spoke to Donnacha Ó Beacháin, Professor of Politics at DCU. He not only knows a huge amount about the country, he also has lived there. So he is perfectly placed to explain the story of Kazakhstan and the recent unrest in this episode.
