Assessment of the performance of the Mongolian law on administrative and territorial units and their governance
Sep 19, 2019
The Mongolian Law on Administrative and Territorial Units and Their Governance (LATUG) is the main law, which regulates local government
affairs. It was first adopted on 18 August of 1992, was revised in 2006 and went through 20 amendments since its first adoption.
The Parliament Secretariat concluded that “Although 25 years have passed since the adoption of the LATUG, a full-scale and comprehensive
assessment of the implementation is missing”. Before analyzing the status of implementation of the law, in this chapter, we aimed to provide a
brief overview of the social, political and economic contexts when the LATUG was first adopted, revised in 2006 and further amended, and how
the changing contexts have subsequently affected the content of the Law.
