Samenvatting After becoming its own nation-state in 1991 for the first time in history, Kazakhstan has been facing major challenges on its path to nation-building. Amidst economic difficulties caused by the shift from communist command economy to a free market system, the country had to unite its multiethnic society with no prior memory of nationhood into a coherent nation. As a result of the extensive Soviet language and identity politics, it was the only republic in the USSR to have the biggest share of its titular Kazakh population speaking Russian to the extent of not knowing their own- Kazakh language. Nonetheless, the country chose nationalism in a form of language revival as means of building a nation whilst developing its economy. The article traces the process of development and its relation to language revival and nationalism in Kazakhstan pointing out the shortcomings of language policy implementation and the future prospects for Kazakh language.
