London: - Since it's formation in 1959 the Tibetan Government in Exile has been taking small aided steps towards a Westernised definition of democracy.

London: The Super Bowl, possibly one of the last places you would expect to see the Potala Palace or hear about Tibetan culture being at peril. Yet a 30 second advert by money saving website, Groupon, thrust Tibet into the living rooms of over 111 million Americans.

Dharamshala: Founded in 1996, the Center for Tibetan Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) is the only human rights organization in exile involving litigation, legal advocacy, education, and public outreach.

Dharamshala: Despite wide-spread world media coverage of China's arrests and sentences over writing the reality of Tibet by many Tibetan writers and intellectuals, China claimed that it has held the first symposium on minority ethnic literature on Nov 20.
