PortrActive Imageaits of Change is a project that explores the transformation in Mongolia resulting from the collapse of socialism there, the transition period that followed, and the market economy that emerged. At the heart of the project is a portrayal of the sociological, economic, and environmental changes that swept the country during this time of historic change. It provides snapshots of the past, present, and future of Mongolia.   The author will discuss what he has learned for the creation of this book and what future changes he sees.

On the Move One Last Time

In true nomadic tradition, the ACMS has relocated several times during the last 10 years.  Through our partnership with local Universities, the ACMS has been located in  the National University Mongolia and the Mongolian University of Science and Technology.  Recently we have been in our temporary location at the Center 34 building. Just as Mongolia is becoming more urban and settled, the ACMS is now moving one more time to what will be our long term home. 

 Through the generous support of the Natsagdorj Ulaanbaatar Public Library, we will be located on the main floor, northeast corner of the Library, accessible by the East Entrance.  This new, larger space will house the ACMS admin office, library and resource center and GIS lab.  It will also be the home for the Books for Asia Program delivered in partnership with the Asia Foundation.

Starting on November 19th, the ACMS will be operating exclusively from the new location.  Come by and visit by following the link to the  new ACMS.
