Abstract: 

Since the mid-2000s, the mining sector has been driving Mongolia's exports. However, while in recent years economic growth has been slowing down, the increased number of mining operations profoundly affects Mongolia's economic policies, social dynamics and environment. The Asian Forum for Human Rights and Development (Forum-Asia) together with its member organisation, Centre for Human Rights and Development (CHRD), conducted a fact-finding mission in the northeastern part of Mongolia from 5 to 10 May 2019. The mission aimed to look into the impact of mining operations on the situation of human rights defenders, women human rights defenders, environment, and local communities. Specifically, it aimed to document unreported cases of violations against defenders working on mining and environmental issues, addressing these cases to State and relevant non-State actors to pressure perpetrators to stop violations.
