Zoom: Mongolia Campaign Update

On June 12, roughly halfway through the parliamentary election campaign, we presented an update on the campaign via Zoom.

In this event, we provided an update on how the campaign is unfolding under COVID-19 restrictions. We discussed the campaign platforms of the dominant parties as well as some of the themes in the campaign literature of challengers to this dominance, especially mining policy.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Marissa Smith, independent researcher
  • B BULGAN, incoming PhD student, Resources, Environment and Sustainability, UBC
  • Dr. Julian Dierkes, Associate Professor, School of Public Policy and Global Affairs
  • O BATBOLD, PhD student, German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer, and Chairman of the Board of the Council for Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility (CSS) Mongolia.

Here’s a recording of our presentation:

This discussion follows on a session we held on June 1 with an overview of parties, candidates, and issues.
