Tibet Under Pressure: A 12-Month Outlook

On 22 February, Chinese authorities arrested over 100 Tibetan monks who were protesting the construction of the Gangtuo hydropower station. The construction of the station would destroy six local Buddhist monasteries. A persistent suppression of cultural, religious, and political freedoms characterises the current situation in Tibet under Chinese rule.

Furthermore, international concerns over human rights abuses will continue to escalate. Unless there is a significant intervention or a shift in Chinese policy, the identity of Tibet risks further erosion. In addition, the Chinese government has continued efforts to assimilate Tibetan culture into the dominant Han Chinese culture. Through measures such as imposing Chinese-medium education in Tibetan schools and restricting religious practices. Despite condemnation in the international community, actions reflecting that condemnation remain unseen. 

Key Judgement 1. The suppression of religious and cultural freedoms in Tibet will likely intensify, as China continues to implement policies aimed at assimilation and control.

Key Judgement 2. International diplomatic and human rights advocacy efforts will likely increase in visibility but will face significant challenges in effecting change within Tibet.

Key Judgement 3. Tibetan resistance will likely heighten China-West tensions, influencing global diplomacy and human rights advocacy.
