Bodibaatar Jigjidsuren, Xin Gu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


Transitioning from a state-owned economy to a market economy, Mongolia’s national cultural policy is dealing with many challenges whilst trying to align with UNESCO’s 2005 Convention. In this interview with Jigjidsuren, the lack of funding, political will and technical knowledge in the making of a national cultural policy by the Mongolia government have been marked as key weaknesses. This chapter shows that the very meaning of culture derived from the old socialist model continues to shape contemporary cultural development in developing Asia.
