Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Tibet Watch is a UK registered charity which was set up in 2006. Our core aim is to promote the human rights of the Tibetan people through human rights monitoring, research and international advocacy. Our main office is in London and we also maintain a field office in Dharamsala, India.

    Our team have a diverse range of skills, including journalism, academic research, human rights campaigning, legal casework, translation and teaching. The researchers on our team are all Tibetan and are able to incorporate their own personal experience of the occupation into their work. This enables us to produce strong but accessible reports on all aspects of the human rights situation in Tibet.

    We document and expose the ongoing human rights abuse in Tibet using a wide range of sources. Our information is used by governments, UN bodies, NGOs, campaigning groups and also by international media.

    Our researchers collect information from a network of brave individuals who are committed to ensuring that the world hears the truth about China's repression and brutality. We also carry out interviews with Tibetan refugees, monitor Chinese government websites and media, track changes in policy or law and review both Tibetan and English language news. We believe that accuracy is vital and all of the information we share is verified and corroborated before being published.

    We also produced thematic reports on key issues and carry out advocacy with the UN and national governments.
