Julian Dierkes, PhD

 

I have become increasingly interested in contemporary Mongolia since 2005.
An experience as an election observer led me to an interested in elections, political parties, and political developments in Mongolia more broadly. I’ve been in Mongolia for the past six national elections.
Canada-Mongolia relations are focused on mining investments. That has led me to a closer interest in the area of mining policy, especially since colleagues in that field at the Univ of British Columbia have been keen to incorporate country/area expertise in their activities.
Much of my academic “product” appears on the Mongolia Focus blog which has been publishing continuously since summer of 2011 and where I write alongside some (former) graduate students.
