The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) is a non-profit organisation committed to advancing human rights and democracy in Tibet and the exiled Tibetan community by empowering Tibetan advocates and monitoring, documenting, and campaigning against human rights abuses.​

What We Do


Through meticulous research, campaigning, and knowledge-sharing, we aim to confront and rectify human rights abuses, and promote democracy.



We publish reports and document human rights violations that lead to evidence-based campaigns to hold duty-bearers accountable.


We work to bring torturers to justice, end social and economic inequality, change oppressive laws, and free people jailed just for voicing their opinion.


We empower advocates for human rights and democracy by facilitating knowledge-sharing and capacity-building workshops.
