Thinking about Environmental Conditions for survival in Mongolia since its democratization -- "Ninja" in the Nomads' World

2011-3-22 (Tue) - 2011-3-24 (Thu)

The Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL) and Japan Consortium for Area Studies (JCAS) will hold a joint research program entitled "Thinking about Environmental Conditions for survival in Mongolia since its democratization -- 'Ninja' in the Nomads' World" during the three days of Tuesday, March 22 through to Thursday, March 14.

"Ninja," in Mongolian, refers to persons who break the law searching for gold, digging in riverbeds, hillsides, and mountainsides. The number of such "ninja" is said to number between 30,000 and 100,000 and the range of their activities has spread to include the whole of Mongolia! Needless to say, these "ninja" are causing a great deal of environmental damage.

Researchers from Japan and Mongolia will discuss the critical state of conditions for survival in Mongolia and try to come up with solutions.

Venue: Senri Room, 6th Floor, Senri Life Science Center

1-4-2, Shin-Senri Higashimachi, Toyonaka

There is no fee charged for attending this seminar.
