Cooperation with International Campaign for Tibet , Berlin
Purchase ticket for this event via internet
The outcome of the European Policy on Tibet is ambivalent: On the one hand there is sympathy for the concerns of the Tibetans and Tibet supporters in the parliaments and governments which is expressed in resolutions and other initiatives, on the other hand the Tibetan movement suffers setbacks again and again when the Tibet Question is adamantly subordinated to other interests.
We want to ask what can be a realistic perspective for a European and German foreign policy but also how a Policy on Tibet guided by human rights and solidarity could look like.
