Migrants to Astana, the New Capital City of Kazakhstan
Management and Entrepreneurship
This paper discusses a research that deals with the pattern of labor migration into Astana. The research was to be used by the Kazakhstan policy-makers. The results, however, are very useful for the purpose of comparison with the patterns of labor migration into other cities which were constructed to serve as capital cities. Astana has fulfilled all expectations, but the problems of the new city could be a challenge for planners and policy-makers for year to come.
