The role of civil society organizations in Mongolia
This paper explains and examines the case of Mongolian civil society role by focusing on the issue of how and to what extent civil society organizations influenced on the current redistributive policy making in Mongolia. To explain this issue, the outside initiative model proposed by Cobb, Ross and Ross (1976) helps us to understand the influence of civil society organizations on policymakers and redistributive policy making. For the analysis, process tracing method was applied with over 80 Mongolian media sources. The findings suggest that Mongolian civil society organizations made significant influence on setting redistributive policy agenda with its rapid expansion and various pressure actions.
