Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) will be hosting the Annual Human Rights Symposium on Tibet at the Tibetan Youth Hostel in Bangalore, South India from 21 to 23 February 2014. The symposium will be attended by twenty-five Tibetan graduate students studying political science, international relations, human rights, law, literature, and history in Indian colleges and universities. The goal of the symposium is to encourage deeper interaction between interested students and scholar-practitioners so that both sides can better understand China’s institutional and structural dominance in Tibet and Tibetan resistance to survive as a distinct people. The symposium will address the following five issues:

  • Tibet’s Human Rights Factor in International Relations
  • China’s Institutional and Structural Dominance in Tibet
  • Exploring Human Rights Protection System in China
  • Pema Tseden’s “Old Dog” and the Changing Identity of Modern Tibet
  • International Human Rights Law and Advocacy in Tibet
