Mongolia has been hailed for its COVID-19 response. Though the country lies between Russia and China, its first recorded case was that of a French national employed by France's state uranium and nuclear company Orano. At the same time, given continuing border closures and stoppages of international flights, Mongolians abroad have had great difficulty repatriating into the summer. Campaign platforms for parliamentary elections campaigns in June heavily focused on increasing trade, logistics, tourism, and other forms of cross-border movement. This talk will address questions around the implications of Mongolia's COVID-19 response and its position in international economy, politics, and society.

Event will be held at 2pm (PDT) / 5pm (EDT). The event is free and will be held on WebEX. Please RSVP in order to receive the meeting information.
