This chapter assesses the movement for democracy that took hold in Mongolia in the early 1990s along with US efforts to help support it. With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, Mongolia embarked on a new path - one that involved both a market economy and representative democracy. Along with other countries, the United States offered diplomatic support, reflected in part in a series of high level visits involving Secretaries of State Baker (1990, 1991), Albright (1998), Rice (2005) and Clinton (2012) as well as First Lady Hilary Clinton (1995), President George Bush (2005) and Vice President Joe Biden (2011). Every Mongolian president and most prime ministers during this period also visited Washington, DC. Such visits reflected deepening diplomatic ties and shared understanding across a range of other issues and concerns, including those related to human rights, civil society, terrorism and nuclear proliferation.
