April 20, 2016 - 19:00

Together with the Association of Foreign Affairs in Lund (UPF) SASNET organizes a seminar with focus on Tibet on Wednesday 20 April from 19.00 at Café Athen, Sandgatan 2, Lund. The speaker is Dr. Dibyesh Anand


The end of negotiations between Beijing and the Dalai Lama, change of leadership in China, advancing age of the Dalai Lama, democratization process in the exile, the desire of foreign powers to work with China due to its growing economic might, unresolved border dispute between India and China and other factors add to the acuteness of the contested question of politics and geopolitics of Tibet. The lecture will highlight the key aspects of the contested Tibet question and analyse how changing dynamics of relations between China, India and the West are relevant and how these relations in turn get affected by the internal politics of Tibet.
