This report is an examination by the International Campaign for Tibet of the impact on Tibetan culture of Chinese Communist Party rule in Tibet. Its publication comes at a time when the situation on the Tibetan Plateau has reached a critical inflexion point. Having compiled this report, ICT makes the following findings:
- The Chinese authorities have engaged in a consistent effort over 60-plus years to replace authentic, organic, Tibetan culture with a state-approved and controlled version that comports with the ideological, political and economic objectives of the Chinese Communist Part.
- Chinese Communist rule in Tibet has exhibited a pattern of repression, relative liberalization, vigorous reassertion of cultural identity by Tibetans, and renewed repression.
- And much more!
