This publication was prepared by a team of scholars working under the project “Support to participatory legislative process” implemented jointly by the Parliament of Mongolia and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2013-2016. The research findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed in it do not represent the views of the Parliament of Mongolia and the UNDP.
The research team composed of Ch.Enkhbaatar, Tom Ginsburg, P.Amarjargal, Ts.Davaadulam, G.Zoljargal, and D.Solongo started its work to assess the performance of the 1992 Constitution of Mongolia in August 2013 – a study commissioned by the project “Support to Participatory Legislative Processes” implemented jointly by the Parliament of Mongolia and the United Nations Development Programme. The research team assisted the Parliamentary Working Group headed by Mr. L.Tsog, Vice Speaker of the Parliament, whose task was to review whether constitutional amendments were necessary or not, in preparation of its recommendations. An interim research report, which covered the constitutional events through 30 June 2014 was published under the title “The Role of the Constitution of Mongolia in Consolidating Democracy: An Analysis”. The team is now presenting its product of the second phase of the research, which has been enriched by the analyses of the constitutional events in Mongolia in the last two years and the issues that were not sufficiently studied in the previous phase. Ch.Enkhbaatar, Tom Ginsburg, M.Batchimeg, Ts.Davaadulam and O.Munkhsaikhan worked on the updated version of the research report.
