13 - Change of Mobility in the Mongolian Society and Its Surrounding Pastoralist Societies

7/6/2018
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Chinar, First Floor

This panel session deals with change of mobility in pastoral societies after 2000, when market economy massively prevailed in accordance with economic globalization in the Mongolian Plateau area, which roughly covers Mongolia, Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang of China, Buryat of Russia, and easternmost part of Kazakhstan. In this panel session, the meaning of mobility covers mobility of people, livestock, and products which flow in to and out of pastoral societies.


Generally speaking, modern states tended to regulate mobility of mobile pastoral people whose notion of spacial boundary had been temporary historically. As a result, their mobility mentioned above was managed by some national standards set by each state. In other words, it was nationalized.


However, globalization which is marked by huge global investment brings about change of mobility which was once nationally regulated. These phenomena can be recognized as a kind of denationalization. In some cases, we can find out such denationalization processes regionally, whereas nationalization is still overwhelming in other cases in the Mongolian Plateau area.


This panel session consists of 3 presentations. The first presentation (Ozaki, T.) includes the explanation of the session and discusses mobility of pastoral laborer from Mongolia to Inner Mongolia. The second presentation (Kazato, M.) discusses material culture in Mongolia in relation to the influence of standardization and international tourism. The third presentation (Battulga, S.) discusses the relationship between ethnic culture and market economy among Mongolian Kazakh.


This panel session will be able to reveal a today’s socio-cultural motion in the Mongolian Plateau area.
