Dharamshala, India — Amid systematic, widespread and gross human rights violations, over six decades in Tibet, the situation in the region has degenerated into a climate of fear, while 'China’s development goals are systematically violating the economic, social and cultural rights' of the people of Tibet, a new report to United Nations has found.
Dharamshala — “Tibetan democracy is an exile administration. In an exile administration, the emphasis is usually on unity, a single leader and a single voice. It is understandable because the purpose is to return. Unity is paramount in such exile set-ups. Once it is a democracy, there is a contradiction because in a democracy, instead of unity, you have to support diversity. Instead of a single leader, there are oppositions. Instead of a single voice, you must have freedom of speech. Hence it is very unique and challenging,” said Tibetan President Dr Lobsang Sangay at Emory University on April 9, 2018.
