Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A launch of an academic book ‘Development, Reinforcement, Issues and Challenges in Democracy in Mongolia 1990-2019’ took place today, on November 20 at the library of the National University of Mongolia (NUM). The book was created within a project being co-implemented by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) in Mongolia and the Institute of Political Relations.

The joint work is consisted of three main chapters ‘Some issues on democratic reinforcement and ruling power institution’, ‘Current condition and pressing issues of development of democratic institutes’, ‘Economic, social and psychological multi-sided changes in democracy in Mongolia and facing problems’ and three other subsections of each chapter.

The joint work with specific issues that were independently touched by researchers is an important initiative to consider and study pressing issues of democracy in Mongolia from many sides in the future, Chairman of the Department of Political Studies of the NUM, Ph.D J.Turtogtokh highlighted during the opening.  

The book aims to demonstrate democratic development in Mongolia, its distortion, current situation, and factors through stability theory and ideology and transition in political, social and economic relations.

“Since the democratic revolution of 1990, democratic system with a multi-party system, free elections and the distribution of political power has been developed in Mongolia. Besides the positive change, Mongolia has had 16 different governments in the last 30 years. Even though, as a land locked country in Central Asia, Mongolia will be appropriately included among the countries that have successfully formed systemic transition,” said Johann Fuhrmann, KAS Resident Representative in Mongolia.
