China’s Position on Tibet

February, 2017, pp. 3

China has received much criticism of its minority rights record, especially in regard to Tibet. Representing a Chinese perspective, Dai Yonghong and Wang Jianping argue that not only are many aspects of cultural, religious, and other rights fully respected in Tibet, as enshrined by the Chinese Constitution and Law on Regional National Autonomy, but also that the developmental achievements of modernization for its ethnic minority groups have all too often been overlooked by critics of China.

This Focus Asia paper is part of a series on the broad theme of China and human rights, providing a range of different viewpoints and points for debate by both Chinese and non-Chinese scholars.
