A recent report by Tibet Press highlights that, according to the Freedom in the World Index for 2023 published by international watchdog Freedom House, Tibet is the country with the least freedom in the world. The report, titled “Freedom in the World 2023 Report,” was released by Freedom House on March 9 and identified Tibet, South Sudan, and Syria as the “least-free countries” in the world. This is the third consecutive year that Tibet has been ranked at the bottom of the list in Freedom House’s surveys conducted in 2021 and 2022. The report stated that residents of Tibet were deprived of basic rights, both Chinese and Tibetan, and that the Chinese government is ruthless in suppressing any signs of dissent among Tibetans.
The UN Committee on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights recently published its Third Periodic Review report on March 6, which emphasized that numerous issues related to the human rights of Tibetans require urgent attention from the international community. As the Chinese government continues to pursue its policy of “Chineseizing” Tibet, the world is closely monitoring its actions. The article suggests that what matters most is the extent to which measures are taken to halt the attack on Tibetan culture and identity.
According to a report by Tibet Press citing the Tibet Rights Collective (TRC), the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has taken another step forward in its efforts to assimilate Tibetans by establishing a “Chinese Nation Community Consciousness Building Research Center” in the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR). The center is intended to promote “national consciousness” among Tibetans, indicating that the CCP’s efforts to “Chineseize” Tibetans are continuing.
