Keynote Address Featuring

Dr. Lobsang Sangay

President, Central Tibetan Administration

Description

Tibet is often a testing ground for the Chinese government to experiment with new forms of repression. The surveillance and heavy police state that is now spreading across China largely originated in Tibet and it was one of the first places where authoritarian tactics were practiced and refined. Given China’s rise and its increasing practice of exporting authoritarian tactics around the globe, the international community should pay close attention to what happens in Tibet. Join us for an update from Central Tibetan Administration’s President, Sikyong Dr. Lobsang Sangay on the current state-of-play in Tibet and stay for a panel discussion examining how Tibet fits into broader U.S. strategy toward China.
