Un ‘tiepido’ inverno riformatore

L’inizio del rinnovamento politico in Mongolia, 1989-1990


Emiliano Vitti    Università degli Studi di Pavia, Italia    


In the wake of the structural crisis that hit the European countries of the Soviet Block in the last months of 1989, also the Mongolian communist institutions knew the strong opposition of a part of the population against the state and political system represented by the People’s Republic of Mongolia, born in 1924 under the influence of the Bolshevik revolution. The aim of this paper is to analyse the evolution of the opposition movements to the regime, the actions implemented by the reformers and the government reactions in a tense political context that did not result in bloody repressions, but gave rise to a process of gradual political, economic and institutional change, which marked a decade of Mongolian history.

Keywords: Peaceful revolution. Beginning democratic transition. Mongolia.
