Mongolia and the Dilemmas of Deepening Eurasian Continentalism 2018-09-27T00:24:15+00:00 Alicia Campi <p>Mongolia is geographically in the heart of the Asian continent. In the 20th century it was part of the geopolitical “Great Game” among Russia, China, and Japan. In the 21st century, the pull of energy and mineral resource economics has changed the circumstances of the Eurasian continental paradigm and could provide the opportunity for this landlocked, Inner Asian country to find economic success, strengthen its national identity, and raise its global<br />image. This paper will examine Mongolian reaction to the various Silk Roadinfluenced<br />policies of its neighbors as it struggles not to be ignored in the emerging continental dynamism.</p> 2018-09-27T00:24:15+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Geopolitical Dilemma of Small States in External Relations: Mongolia’s Tryst with ‘Immediate’ and ‘Third’ Neighbours 2018-09-27T00:24:19+00:00 Sharad K Soni No abstract in English 2018-09-27T00:24:19+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## International Migration and Human Security and Development in Mongolia 2018-09-27T00:24:22+00:00 Tsuneo Akaha No abstract in English 2018-09-27T00:24:22+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Roots of the Mongolian State: Genghis Khan’s Survival and Pragmatism as related in the Secret History of the Mongols 2018-09-27T00:24:24+00:00 Robert Bedeski <p class="Pa6">The genesis of the first Mongol State (1206) was overseen and led by Genghis Khan, whose conquests remain a formidable historical series of events. The <em>Secret History of the Mongols </em>narrates his biography as a tale of surviving repeated life threats and defeating major enemies. From this history, I have extracted an existential framework to explain how he survived in a dangerous natural, social and political environment. The rise of this State compressed what occurred in most other historical States, and I will summarize my Anthrocentric Security Theory as general explanation of this phenomenon, drawing on Western philosophy, especially philosophical anthropology. The framework consists of four levels of Being - state of nature, life- community, State, and civil society. Each level has enabled humans to devise several Security Action Platforms from which are launched particular security actions, culminating in the State. Successful in three stages, but not in creating a civil society, the Mongol State assimilated and absorbed the strengths of natural men and life-communities, enabling the expansion into Eurasian empire under his sons and grandsons.</p> 2018-09-27T00:24:24+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mongolia In An Emerging Northeast Asian Region 2018-09-27T00:24:30+00:00 Julian Dierkes Mendee Jargalsaikhan <p>The regional integration of Northeast Asia is far behind other regions.Recent developments on the Korean Peninsula offer the possibility of a trajectory toward integration. Any regionalization would be in Mongolia’s national interest.Mongolia’s material contribution to regional integration would be limited. However, Mongolia could contribute greatly to the regionalization processes We highlight such process contributions: (1) the provision of neutral ground for dialogue between conflicting parties; (2) hosting peacekeeping and disaster-relief exercises; (3) promoting non-governmental connections; and (4) serving as an example for political and economic transition. If US-DPRK negotiations result in positive steps, Mongolia could contribute expertise in the establishment of a nuclear-weapon free zone.</p> 2018-09-27T00:24:30+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Expanding Vistas of Mongolia-Russia Strategic Partnership since 2000 Ulaanbaatar Declaration 2018-09-27T00:24:35+00:00 Vaishali Krishna No abstract in English 2018-09-27T00:24:35+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## National Security Concept Of Mongolia 2018-09-27T00:24:37+00:00 Zolboo D No abstract in English 2018-09-27T00:24:37+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Concept of Mongolia’s foreign policy 2018-09-27T00:24:40+00:00 Zolboo D No abstract in English 2018-09-27T00:24:40+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
