In 2013, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) will review China's compliance with its commitments on human rights for young people.
Free Tibet and Tibet Watch have submitted a comprehensive and damning joint report to the committee documenting the reality for children growing up under military occupation.
Human rights in Tibet
Tibet Watch was established in 2006 to promote the human rights of the Tibetan people by providing accurate information about the situation in Tibet, for the purposes of educating people and engaging in international advocacy on behalf of the Tibetan people.
As a research-based human rights monitoring organisation, Tibet Watch's researchers speak to a range of contacts, collating and corroborating testimonies and eye-witness accounts of human rights abuses in Tibet, including torture and arbitrary detention.
Our staff also receives testimonies from new Tibetan refugee arrivals in Dharamsala, India. Tibet Watch has been at the forefront of securing information about self-immolations and protests which have swept across Tibet in 2012.
The information which Tibet Watch supplies is used by human rights advocates; UN-mandated human rights bodies, the media, Governments and campaigning organisations such as Free Tibet.
Bearing witness to serious rights violations provides protection. Tibet Watch has documented cases when advocacy has prevented torture, reduced sentences and forced the state to take a more proportionate response to large scale incidents.
