Dr. Lobsang Sangay, President, Central Tibetan Administration
Tibet’s Prime Minister in Exile and an expert panel discussion on the way forward.
The Dalai Lama has long advocated a “middle way” – neither assimilation nor independence — in Tibet’s relationship with the People’s Republic of China. It is an approach that has been endorsed by the U.S. government as the most promising framework in which to “support the aspirations of the Tibetan people to safeguard their distinct identity,” (in the words of the 2002 Tibet Policy Act) and maintain the U.S. position that Tibet is part of the PRC. What is the future of the middle way approach? What are the policy options for the United States?
