Young Mongols : Forging Democracy in the Wild, Wild East
by Aubrey Menard




Overview -
In 1990, Mongolia's youth-led revolution threw off the Soviet yoke, ushering in multi¬party democracy. Thirty years later, the country's youth are still leading Mongolia's democratic development. This powerful, inclusive book introduces readers to modern Mongolia through the stories of young leaders fighting to make their country a better, more democratic place. Its intersectional perspective explores the complexity of Mongolia today: the urban planning and pollution issues that plague the capital city of Ulaanbaatar; the struggles of women, the LGBTQIA+ population, people with disabilities, and ethnic minorities to claim their equitable places in society; the challenge of providing education in the world's least densely-populated country to prepare the workforce of tomorrow; and how to fairly divide the spoils of the country's vast mineral resource wealth. This rising generation of Mongolians is already wielding real power and shaping their country's future. Their work will determine whether the country is able to overcome its development and democratization challenges, its relationship to the world, and who the winners (and losers) will be in Mongolian society.
