    This critical study examines the numerous barriers which serve to mitigate the spread of religious extremism and the formation of a local support base for Islamic terrorism in Kazakhstan. These factors, including historical, linguistic, cultural, religious, and social development, are considered in order to understand fully the driving factors in the evolution of Kazakhstan’s counterterrorist policy and the state’s ongoing efforts to restrict the growth of Islamic radicalization.
