What Does the Future Hold for Tibetan Democracy?

What Does the Future Hold for Tibetan Democracy? | Tibet Central | Scoop.it
Since it's formation in 1959 the Tibetan Government in Exile has been taking small aided steps towards a Westernised definition of democracy. It has even taken some momentous steps such as the creation of the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission in the 1990's and the establishment of the Kalon Tripa role in the early 2000's however, these were all done under the supreme leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Now the Tibetan Government in Exile (TGiE) must take its first steps alone and when Lobsang Sangay is officially inaugurated as Kalon Tripa (Prime Minister) later this year accompanied with a new official charter relinquishing His Holiness of his political supremacy they will no longer have him to rely upon.

But our most precious resource is disappearing one drop at a time. This is the warning behind a new documentary called: Revealed: Himalayan Meltdown.
