Officially, the government of Kazakhstan does not recognize its own style of government as authoritarian. Government officials, as well as pro-government political commentators and analysts, categorically exclude the term when describing the current form of governance. Rather, they point to the presence in the country of formal institutions of democracy, and the declaration of certain principles, when attempting to prove the democratic nature of the Kazakhstani state, referring to Kazakhstan as a transitional democracy.

Joint HDIM statement on freedom of association

In many OSCE participating States today, non-governmental organizations are operating in an insecure and hostile environment. Especially organizations that criticize and challenge government policies, such as human rights NGOs are met with suspicion and mistrust and denounced as unpatriotic, traitors, national enemies and the like. These groups are also the main targets of repressive laws that restrict the opportunities of NGOs to receive funding (especially but not only foreign funding), obtain legal status, and conduct their activities in unimpeded ways.
