Conference participants pose for a group photo at the Chinggis Khaan Statue near Ulaanbaatar during a cultural event the day before the start of the workshop.

An APCSS Outreach team arrived in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia late last week to cohost a workshop entitled “Northeast and Central Asia Transnational Security Challenges: Ungoverned Spaces – Physical and Virtual,” which is being held Sept. 6-9. The cohosts for the workshop are the Mongolian APCSS Alumni Association, the Mongolia Institute for Security Studies (MISS), and the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies.
