Abstract

The decision to grant Kazakhstan the chairmanship of the OSCE during 2010 has been a disputed one. The reason why this appointment has been contested was that the country was considered not to live up to the OSCE standards in the field of human rights and fundamental freedoms, while it should be the very CiO that should actively defend and preferably further these standards. This article now will reflect on the question if Kazakhstan as the OSCE CiO 2010 has de facto strengthened or weakened the organization. Subsequently, the article will among others concentrate on how Kazakhstan ensured the CiO position, up to what level it upheld pledges made in the field of human rights and fundamental freedoms at the eve of being entrusted the chairmanship, as well as on the first OSCE Summit in eleven years, organized by Kazakhstan.
