WOLTS Blog on Mongolia’s Left Behind Men

  • 23 April 2019

The WOLTS project is excited to have published a blog by Narangerel Yansanjav, a key member of our team. The piece, titled “Left behind – the Mongolian herders living at home with Mum”, has been simultaneously published on the Mokoro website and on the Land Portal. In her blog, Nara describes the plight of men in their mid-to-late 30s who lost out on their education due to past policy changes. Many who are still single provide welcome support for their mothers, enabling widows to keep herding, but those who are married often miss out on life with their young families due to a much more recent policy change.
