Green Mining in the Gobi? Multilateral Norms and the Making of Mongolia’s Mining Regime

  • Pascale Hatcher
Part of the Studies in the Political Economy of Public Policy book series (PEPP)


Building on the case of Mongolia, this chapter seeks to tease out the particular politics of the current race for the development of the country’s extensive reserves of mineral resources. Similar to the case of Laos, Mongolia has positioned its abundance of coal, gold, and copper as the cornerstone of its economic development. This chapter follows the World Bank Group’s (WBG) attempts to assist Ulan Bator in the design and implementation of the country’s new mining regime.
