My name is Sergey Marinin. I am an independent researcher from Kazakhstan. Most of my career so far has been connected to the OSCE broader network: I graduated from the OSCE Academy in Bishkek with a Master’s degree in Politics and Security in Central Asia. I worked with OSCE/ODIHR Election Observation missions in Kazakhstan. I was also a Research Fellow at the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly’s Secretariat in Copenhagen working on election observation and human rights issues in Central Asia and Eastern Partnership countries. Prior to that, I worked for Kazakhstan’s Human Rights Commissioner’s Office as a consultant on National Preventive Mechanism (NPM) dealing with problems of ill-treatment and torture.

My current research in EUCAM will focus on the European Union. I am interested to analyse how the Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (EPCA) between the EU and Kazakhstan can contribute to fostering democratic reforms in this latter. Specifically, I am looking into the mechanisms of how the EPCA and a new EU Strategy for Central Asia could mutually enhance Kazakhstan’s human rights profile along with sustaining the rule of law.
