Mongolian alumni association photoThe Alumni Association of Mongolia is the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies Alumni Association of the Year for 2015.

The association is recognized for long-running support to DKI APCSS outreach and education efforts to include workshops on emergency preparedness and risk reduction, de-mining and peacekeeping operations, and transnational security challenges. The group is currently working with Center faculty members to assist in hosting a Women, Peace and Security seminar later this year in Ulaanbaatar.

Mongolia’s alumni have also assisted DKI APCSS in helping their nation form its National Security and Foreign Policy Concepts and most recently its National Defense Policy.

“Congratulations to our friends in Mongolia for a job well done,” said DKI APCSS Director Lt. Gen. (Ret) Dan Leaf. “They’ve demonstrated a long-term commitment to using the skills and connections they’ve gained at the Center to enhance their nation’s security processes. They’re a great example of the many outstanding alumni associations we have throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”
