The ANU Mongolia Institute was formed in 2013 to promote Mongolian Studies, not only at the ANU but also throughout Australasia. The vision of the Institute is to establish the ANU as a global centre for Mongolian Studies, supported and driven by the rapid increase in business, trade and cultural exchange between Mongolia and Australia and the strong Australian interest in Mongolia. The Institute provides a formal source of advice and information on Mongolia for the University, government organisations, and the broader public to the extent that such advice and information is not available through other channels.
The Institute provides a support network for Australian researchers on Mongolia and promotes active participation by government, business, and the public in the Institute’s activities, including up-to-date information and research through this blog. The editors of this site are the Director of the Mongolia Institute, Professor Li Narangoa, and anthropologist, Dr. Natasha Fijn.
