A Mongolian delegation joined a round table at USAI to discuss the state of Mongolia’s democracy as it reviews the system 26 years later. Representatives from the USAI Congressional Circle, CRS, and the Hill attended the discussion, as well as a former Peace Corps volunteer who worked in Mongolia. The delegation addressed questions about Mongolia’s political system, educating millennials on the importance of democracy, female empowerment, human rights, religious freedom, and how it maintains positive relations with neighboring Russia, China, and North Korea.

The delegation explored ways that it might collaborate with USAI and other American think tanks, NGOs, and governmental institutions to promote stability and democracy in Mongolia.

The US-Asia Institute looks forward to celebrating 30 years of Mongolia-US relations later this year.
