The International Campaign for Tibet works with governments in the United States, the European Union, and around the world to promote policies to help the Tibetan people.
Government advocacy can have a tremendous impact in the effort to improve the lives of Tibetans and to encourage the Dalai Lama’s Middle Way solution of genuine autonomy for Tibet.
U.S. Government Advocacy
The United States Government can be a powerful and effective advocate for Tibet. Through our Government Relations department, ICT works with the U.S. Congress on Tibetan issues, including on legislation to advance a negotiated settlement for Tibet’s future and funding for programs to benefit Tibetans. ICT also collaborates with the U.S. State Department, and especially the Office of the Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, to ensure that Tibet’s interests are addressed in U.S. foreign policy.
European & United Nations Advocacy
Governments in the European Union and around the world can be powerful and effective advocates for Tibet. Through our offices in Amsterdam, Berlin and Brussels, ICT works with the European Parliament and European Commission on Tibetan issues, and Parliamentarians in individual European countries to encourage political and financial support for Tibetans.
