Is there a solution for the Tibetan independence movement?
Today, on the 60th anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan Rebellion and the fleeing of the Dalai Lama and Tibet’s government to India, the situation between China, the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration (Tibet’s government in exile) remains at an impasse. However the Tibetan Diaspora continue to protest and demand independence, while China remain steadfast in their policies in Tibet. What do you think is the best solution to this situation, if there can be one? stltoday.com/news/world/years-after-dalai-lama-fled-china-defends-tibet-policies/article_54db8d8e-db8f-5249-8d64-d0bd8bb1405b.html

The situation in Tibet has been such a long stalemate that even the Dalai Lama has publicly given up on the push for independence or greater autonomy in Tibet. China however continues to accuse the Dalai Lama of leading the Tibetan independence movement and refuse to enter into a dialogue. If China is serious about the freedom of religion provided for in their constitution the Chinese government should meet with the Dalai Lama, at least to demonstrate respect to his position and importance to Tibetan Buddhists. Likewise as it seems the Dalai Lama has already accepted the situation, the Tibetan independence movement should recognise the futility of their position with China and push for mutual respect and greater acknowledgement of human rights in the region. theguardian.com/world/2008/oct/26/tibet-dalailama en.people.cn/constitution/constitution.html
