Abstract:

After Kazakhstan gained independence in 1991 its seat of government was moved north and renamed Astana, meaning "sublime gateway." Old Soviet-era buildings were torn down and internationally acclaimed architects hired to design a model city that might become the hub not just of Kazakhstan, but of all of Central Asia. A decade after its conception, has Astana lived up to its promise? In this program, citizens who are preparing to celebrate Astana's 10-year anniversary discuss their hopes for and criticism of the world's newest capital city.
