Examine international relations, natural resource management, nomadic traditions, and economic growth from Mongolia's unique vantage point. As a student on this program, you will look at the interplay between nomadic traditions, foreign engagement, economic development, and natural resource utilization in the context of Mongolia, a nation facing rapid economic and environmental change. You will scrutinize the multiple ways in which mining, conservation of pasturelands, grazing rights, and other resource management issues are shaping public and private life. For one to two weeks, you will live among nomadic herding communities and experience some of the most pristine natural environments in the world.
