The Tibetan Center in Kingston and the Human Rights Project of Bard College co-host a two-hour panel discussion, "The Future of Tibet," at Bard's Bertelsmann Campus on February 23. Panelists include Tendor, the executive director of Students for a Free Tibet; the Honorable Lobsang Nyandak, His Holiness the Dalai Lama's Representative to the Americas; Tibetan scholar and President of Tibet House US Dr. Robert Thurman; Director of the Modern Tibet Studies Program at Columbia University Robert Barnett; and Professor of Political Science at City University of New York Ming Xia. The discussion focuses on the forced assimilation, repression, torture, displacement, and imprisonment that Tibetans have faced under more than 60 years of Chinese rule, resulting in an increased number of protests and suicides in the past year. The panel will examine past atrocities, the possibility for a reconciled future, and why world-leading countries have denied adequate help.
