Kazakhstan is the most peaceful country in the Russia and Eurasia region, and the 70th most peaceful country overall on the 2020 Global Peace Index. However, it also had the largest deterioration in the region, with the most significant change occurring on the Safety and Security domain.

Kazakhstan’s political terror scale score fell to three, indicating that political persecution and human rights abuses had become widespread. There were also smaller deteriorations in the homicide rate and police rate, and a very small increase in the number of refugees and internally displaced persons as a percentage of the population.
