Mongolia has made progress on administrative simplification and transparency, but its Communist legacy has proven difficult to shake. As popular demand for good governance continues to grow, there is some untapped potential for increased e-government and e-participation. Given that the evolution of the judiciary will be slow, following the Estonian/Georgian model and reducing resources that are susceptible to corruption by legislative and administrative reforms remains the best way forward. This implies that a far broader effort is needed than the limited work of the agencies currently dedicated to fighting corruption – with more transparency of public expenditures being a good place to start.
