WOLTS Blog on Mongolia’s Split Families

  • 30 April 2019

Following publication of the WOLTS blog on Left Behind Men, the WOLTS project team is delighted to have published a second blog that also focuses on the complex intersection of gender and social relations and natural resource governance and management. The piece, titled “Mongolian herder families are being split between countryside and town”, has been written by B. Munkhtuvshin, a key member of our WOLTS Mongolia team, and has been simultaneously published on the Mokoro website and on the Land Portal. In her blog, Munkhtuvshin looks at how changes in government policies around education impact negatively in unintended ways on the family life and livelihoods of Mongolian pastoral communities.
