In Mongolia, ultra-nationalist groups such as Bosoo Khukh Mongol and Dayar Mongol portray themselves as protecting Mongolian interests in the face of foreign law-breaking, political corruption, and soaring income inequality. Recently, these groups have seen their popularity and membership swell and a number of new nationalist groups have been formed. Critics, however, contend that the groups scapegoat innocent foreigners and a number of violent attacks targeting foreigners have been blamed on the groups. Now, the Mongolian government is planning reforms to its legal system with provisions that aim to prevent hate crimes and discrimination.
