Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy

The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy investigates and reports on human rights issues in Tibet and among Tibetan minorities throughout China.[1][2] It is the first Tibetan non-governmental human rights organization to be established in exile in India.[3][4][5] TCHRD promotes the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights,[6] publishes news articles on the censorship and discrimination faced by Tibetans in Tibet; keeps databases on political prisoners, Tibetan's who have self-immolated, and Tibetans who have died in detention; and publishes reports and yearly human rights updates. TCHRD has emphasized that an "important source of support for the Tibetan people comes from the Chinese community from both within and outside China."[7]
