Across Two Seas: Cooperation among Social Science Scholars of Poland and Kazakhstan

A collection of research papers by Polish, Kazakh and Lithuanian authors dedicated to the formation and development of modern Kazakhstan was published in 2016. The collection examines a wide range of historical, legal, political, economic, ecological, ethno-confessional and cultural issues. Some of the articles are written in Russian, some in Polish, the rest in English. The publication of the collection shows the interest in Poland towards Kazakhstan – a country where tens of thousands of Poles have been thrown at various times, and where the Polish diaspora still exists.
