Kazakhstan can be considered as a safe place to live and study in for several of the following investigations:

Kazakhstan is one of the 163 countries that is included in this international index. Rating assesses the security of residence in countries in terms of internal and interstate conflicts, international relations and military expenditures.
The Global Peace Index is the cumulative coefficient that expresses the peacefulness of 163 countries, defining the scale of violence and aggression within the state and in its foreign policy.
