According to Karin, the most significant factor in ideological work is the creation of a new national quality, the evolution of the national value system, and the reinforcement of identity. 

“From the start of his presidency, Tokayev has consistently promoted national values, including the ideals of Independence and patriotism, the cult of work and knowledge, law and order, humanity and responsibility.
