Almost three years ago, I started my own consulting firm which focuses on democracy and governance work. I’ve worked for clients on projects all over the world which have focused on, for example, helping countries better manage their natural resources, countering disinformation, providing better educational opportunities, improving government service delivery, ensuring the rights of gender and sexual minorities, and more.
I also serve as an international elections observer and have observed elections in the Kyrgyz Republic, Georgia, Belarus, North Macedonia, and Ukraine. Next week, I’m headed to Azerbaijan to observe their parliamentary elections.
I recently wrote my first book! It’s called Young Mongols: Forging Democracy in the Wild, Wild East and it will be published by Penguin Random House SEA in March 2020. Continue reading Choose Your Own Career Adventures with Aubrey Mernarndt
