Liberalisation of the Mongolian Pastoral Economy and its Impact Within the Household: A Case Study of Arhangai and Dornogobi Provinces

Published on 1 May 1993

This paper is concerned with the differential impact (by age and gender) of economic liberalisation on herding households in Mongolia. The findings
are based on five weeks field work in Dornogobi and Arhangai provinces
carried out between August and October 1992. The discussion focuses on
changing income, expenditure and consumption patterns of herding households
and considers the present and future impact of these changes on women,
children and older people. The framework for this discussion will be a
consideration of the household from a gender perspective and will include
relevant data concerning houshold division of labour and time use, the
relative position of men and women in household decision-making and the
position of female headed households.
