Organized Crime in Kazakhstan: State and Solutions

Kuandyk Zairullaevich Tokubayev


The article deals with the problem of organized crime in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Currently, organized crime is a major factor of the political and socio-economic instability of the state. One of the reasons of the circumstances existing in the field of combating organized crime is the insufficient scientific analysis of the problem, the lack of clear ideas about the strategy and ideology of the fight, as well as legal, criminological, forensic, and investigation concepts for identification, detection, investigation, and prevention of organized crime. In writing this report, the author pursued the following objectives: to review and analyze current issues related to organized crime; to justify the need to improve the measures for combating organized crime based on the analysis of the international experience and the views of scientists. As a result of the research, the author has come to the following conclusions: improvement of measures for combating organized crime needs solving a number of organizational and legal issues. They include development of a unified government strategy to combat organized crime, involvement of the whole society in the struggle against this crime, as well as the study and implementation of the international experience. When developing a domestic regulatory act for combating organized crime under the criminal law, one should rely on some of the key ideas contained in the RICO Act.
