Mongolia is sandwiched between Russia and China, burdened with the large Gobi desert and inhabited by only 2.3 million people. The 1992 Constitution was adopted by the National Parliament of Mongolia on 13 Jan 1992 in the Capital Ulaanbaatar. It is the fourth constitution of the newly democratic country with a multi-party system and entered into force on 12 Feb 1992 (cf. Art. 70
). The First Amendment to the Constitution has been made in May 2001. The amendment is not yet included in the ICL edition.
