Mongolian president receives an honorary doctorate in politics from HUFS.
The Mongolian president received an honorary doctorate in politics from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies at the Seoul Campus on May 19, 2016, and also delivered a special lecture to its student.
"We hope that the cooperation between South Korea and Mongolia will further develop. We have decided to provide Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj with an honorary doctorate for his contributions to the development of democracy at home and abroad," HUFS said.
Journalist-turned-politician Elbegdorj is referred to as the father of Mongolian democracy. Through the democratic movement in 1990, Mongolia became the first socialist country to embrace democracy and market system. He was named as the president in 2009, and made efforts to bolster the presence of Mongolia in the global realm.
