Gender Equity in Tibetan Public Affairs

Join DR. B. TSERING, Reagan Fascell Democracy Fellow and Member of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile for a discussion about the lack of a role women play in Tibetan in democracy.

July 20, 2012 3:00pm to 4:00pm

While great strides have been made in promoting democracy in the Tibetan exile community, B. Tsering's research suggests that women are, for the most part, still missing from Tibetan exile decision-making processes. B. Tsering discusses new findings and recommendations about: How to understand the development of democratic culture in the absence of women's voices? And what can be done to advance gender equality in the Tibetan public affairs?

Light refreshments will be provided.
