Dharamshala, India — The recent travel ban preventing Chinese people including their students from traveling abroad is completely different than what we saw years of the complete lockdown in the occupied territories of Tibet.

Dharamshala — Tibet, with a written history of more than 2,000 years, was an independent, sovereign state with great military and moral power in Asia, conquering neighbouring states and beyond. However, the People's Republic of China (PRC) has invaded and justifies its occupation by claiming that Tibet has been part of China. This one-sided claim is not supported by any historical facts.

Dharamshala — The 2016 Sikyong and members of the Tibetan Parliament election is one of the most important for the past many years. Not only the Kashag is in play but also the Parliament and, after the devolution of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's political responsibilities to the democratically elected Tibetan leadership, even the future of Tibet.

Dharamshala — The deteriorating situation in Hong Kong sends a strong diplomatic signal to the international community that there's no future for people who worship the "one country, two systems" framework. Beijing has failed to adhere to the rule of law by denying ethno-religious minorities the rights and freedoms originally promised. Hong Kong people reacted with shock but little surprise to China's decision to bar a British activist and vocal critic of human-rights abuses in China.

Dharamshala — The root causes of protest by Tibetans in Tibet against the Chinese communist regime, including self-immolations, stem from a wide range of factors such as, violent political repression, cultural assimilation, economic marginalisation, ethnic discrimination, nomadic displacement and environmental destruction.

Dharamshala — For over half a century, China's iron-fisted policy has brought occupation, colonisation, political repression, cultural assimilation and environmental destruction, among other factors, to Tibet, making the conflict on Tibet one of the world's longest-running problems.
