In order to respond to the research questions regarding the regionalization of security in Central Asia, it is necessary to consider the security in a regional context as a set of ideas, norms, institutions and identities, which are formed by states. My basic research question is concerned about what is the current dynamics and what are grounds of the Central Asia regionalism. Therefore the aim of my article is to present the specificity of current Central Asian regionalism. I also focus on the constructivist role of social and cultural issues and the contribution of Kazakhstan to the development of regionalization of security in Central Asia. These aspects are important to understand a current evolution of regionalism in the region of Central Asia. In the first part I decided to put forward essential concepts of regionalism and regionalization that are crucial basis for me to analyze the importance of regional approach on the level of Central Asian countries. Then I concentrate on the trends and grounds of regionalization in Central Asia, the Kazakh role in this process and all my findings and answers to questions are ended by a section of conclusions.

W celu udzielenia odpowiedzi na pytania badawcze dotyczące procesu regionalizacji bezpieczeństwa w Azji Środkowej, niezbędne jest rozważenie kwestii bezpieczeństwa w kontekście regionalnym jako zespołu idei, norm, instytucji i tożsamości, które są tworzone przez państwa. Moje podstawowe pytanie badawcze jest następujące: jaka jest obecnie dynamika oraz jakie są podstawy środkowoazjatyckiego regionalizmu. Dlatego celem mojego artykułu jest zaprezentowanie obecnej specyfiki regionalizmu Azji Środkowej. Koncentruję się także na konstruktywistycznych rolach społecznych i kulturalnych kwestii oraz na wkładzie Kazachstanu w rozwój regionalizacji bezpieczeństwa w Azji Środkowej. Te aspekty są ważne, by zrozumieć obecną ewolucję regionalizmu w regionie Azji Środkowej. W pierwszej części zdecydowałem się przedstawić istotne koncepcje regionalizmu i regionalizacji, które stanowią dla mnie kluczową podstawę umożliwiającą analizę znaczenia podejścia regionalnego na poziomie krajów Azji Środkowej. Następnie skupiam się na trendach i podstawach regionalizacji w Azji Środkowej, kazachskiej roli w tym procesie, zaś wszystkie moje wnioski i odpowiedzi na postawione pytania zwieńczone zostały sekcją poświęconą konkluzjom.
