[Session 4] Democracy in exile, the new model to counter authoritarianism?
When all seems lost … well, it’s not. From the start of China’s invasion of Tibet, in 1950, Beijing cracked down on the Tibetan model of governance and the traditional way of life. From seeking to replace the language, to forcing the Dalai Lama into exile, China left no room for dissent. But Tibetans created an alternative model of governance. In exile: the Tibetan Government in Exile!
Join this conversation with Tashi Phuntsok (Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration to the European Union) to learn more about it, and understand how such a model can be used to further struggles for freedom in places where authoritarianism is the norm.
